    Sick Pay Guarantee

Sick and carer’s pay for casual and contract workers

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.

You must be signed up before you get sick to claim sick and carer’s pay.

You can sign up if:

  • you have the right to work in Australia
  • you're 15 or older
  • you work in Victoria
  • you work in an eligible job
  • you average more than 7.6 hours each week in that job
  • you don't get paid annual, sick or carer's leave in any job

Ballarat Neighbourhood Centre office staff can help you sign up. Contact reception to make an appointment for assistance with the Sick Pay Guarantee registration.
