Definition of an employed person who is ‘expected to become unemployed'

Below are definitions for each of the four categories:

  • Stood down/ furloughed employee: Employee that has been stood down or an employee that is at risk of becoming unemployed and requires upskilling or reskilling for a new role and employment elsewhere.
  • Person starting a job (employed for 6 months or less): employed on condition of receiving training to build capacity and capability for the job role. This would be within the first 6 months of employment.
  • Low skilled/unskilled employee: Existing employee, with or without relevant skills or previous qualification up to Certificate III, that requires training to upskill to secure ongoing employment or future employment
  • Workers in declining industries: Workers at any company in an agreed declining industry (e.g. international travel industry) who require upskilling/reskilling for redeployment.
