The Victorian Sick Pay Guarantee provides eligible casual and contract workers with a guarantee they will receive sick pay when they can’t go to work. Because no worker should have to choose between a day’s pay and their health – or the health of a loved one.
Victoria is the first state to provide sick and carer’s pay to casual and contract workers.
The three-year pilot program is fully funded by the Victorian Government. The pilot has been extended for another year and will now run until 13 March 2025.
