Question on Notice

Ms Ryan to ask the Treasurer — Will the Government provide financial support to employers who are impacted by the Government’s mandatory vaccination mandate.

Answer
Answered: 24 November 2021

 

The advice from the Burnet Institute and all our public health officials is that vaccination remains our best protection. As we move through Victoria’s Plan to Deliver the National Roadmap, it is still crucial we continue to protect our health system from being overwhelmed. Vaccination also reduces the risk of those that contract COVID-19 experiencing severe symptoms.

 

Since the pandemic began, the Government has allocated over $13 billion in business support.

 

Victorian businesses are also benefitting from a suite of tax deferrals and waivers. This includes a payroll tax credit for small and medium-sized businesses to re-employ existing workers and hire new staff.
