Changes to mutual obligation and face-to-face servicing requirements  

The Australian Government has announced changes to mutual obligation requirements for job seekers in specified employment services programs, including jobactive and Disability Employment Services. Other changes announced will affect how job seekers in these programs, as well as participants in ParentsNext, will receive services.

Please note these changes do not take immediate effect.

  • In early March 2021, face-to-face servicing with providers will recommence subject to local health advice and state and territory COVID-19 requirements.
  • In early April 2021, the minimum number of job searches for most job seekers will rise to 15, increasing to 20 jobs per month from early July 2021.

Current mutual obligation requirement arrangements remain in effect until further notice.
