My question is to the Minister for Employment. Minister, how is the Andrews Labor government’s sick pay guarantee benefiting Glen Waverley constituents? The sick pay guarantee is a nation-leading reform which is making a tangible difference to casual workers in the Glen Waverley electorate. For too long casual workers have been faced with the impossible choice: go to work sick to pay the bills and put food on the table or stay home but forgo a pay cheque. In modern, prosperous Victoria this should not have been a reality for casual workers. Under the landmark sick pay guarantee, casual workers are able to access 38 hours of sick and carers pay every year funded by the Victorian government. Accessing the scheme is easy; it takes just 5 minutes to sign up on the Service Victoria website or on the Service Victoria app. Once your details are confirmed, you will be able to access a week’s worth of sick and carers pay at a minimum wage. It is a win not just for the wellbeing of the individual worker but also for their colleagues and our whole community. I am proud to be part of an Andrews Labor government that is working hard to protect our casual workers.
