The current requirement for self-isolation due to suspected or confirmed infection of COVID-19 is presenting considerable challenges for businesses and employees.

To support our casual employees currently working on a customer site or Programmed site in Australia during this time, Programmed is offering Isolation Support leave to eligible employees suspected or diagnosed with COVID-19, required or directed to self-isolate. More information can be found by clicking here. Eligibility criteria applies and this payment is discretionary.

If you live in Victoria and are diagnosed with COVID-19 or directed to self-isolate, state government support may be available to you. Those eligible can learn more about the government support available here.

Please note, to be eligible for Programmed’s Paid Isolation Leave,
