Mutual Obligations Update
Mutual Obligation Requirements have been temporarily suspended until Tuesday 3 August 2021. This extended suspension of requirements applies to job seekers and participants with mutual obligation requirements across employment services programs − jobactive, ParentsNext, and DES.
This applies throughout the LGAs of Bayside, Blue Mountains, Canada Bay, Central Coast, City of Sydney, Greater Sydney, Inner West, Randwick, Shellharbour, Wollongong, and Woollahra.
This now means all mutual obligation requirements for affected job seekers and participants have been suspended — no compliance action will be taken, and your payment/s cannot be suspended. You will not be penalised for not meeting your mutual obligation requirements, such as signing your Job Plan, attending, or reporting your attendance at appointments or activities.
