New laws to be introduced to those undergoing the brunt of economic impact of Covid

A bill has been introduced to Federal Parliament, the Social Services and Other Legislation Amendment (Coronavirus and Other Measures) Bill 2020, which contains several measures to support Australians who are experiencing negative economic consequences of COVID-19. Among these are two additional payments of $250 for pensioners and other support cardholders (about 5 million recipients) to be paid from the end of November and February. The bill also amends the independence criteria for the youth allowance, incentives to encourage agricultural employment, temporary easing of the paid parental leave work tests, and changes to infant death payments and child support
