The TRA has provided the following update in relation to ‘Job Ready Workplace Assessments’ during the COVID crisis
TRA are very aware that the COVID 19 outbreak and government imposed restrictions are impacting on Job Ready Program (JRP) participants. We are currently working through our options and talking to RTO’s who undertake the step 3 workplace assessment, to identify ways in which we can continue the service. There will, however, be a number of instances where it will not be possible to conduct a Job Ready Workplace Assessment (JRWA) for various reasons such as an inability to attend the workplace because of COVID 19. Where possible we will reschedule to a time when it is possible to do so.
TRA is continuing to monitoring the situation to ensure that applications and participation in the JRP will continue to be assessed wherever possible. While every effort will be made to minimise the impact of these interruptions, delays to some processes are anticipated, and may continue into the foreseeable future.
TRA are endeavouring to maintain contact with people affected by closures etc, and asking that participants in the program contact us when they are directly affected, through JRPEnquiries@dese.gov.au with their TRA number, name and details of the effect (business restrictions or closure).
Nevett Ford Lawyers will continue to monitor developments and provide updates as further information becomes available.
