Central Coast business owners are encouraged to register for a free webinar to learn about COVID-19 support from the NSW Government.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the NSW Small Business COVID-19 Information Webinar – Business Support and Wellbeing will be held at 6pm on Thursday, 25 June.

“As we begin to pivot from COVID-19 ‘response’ to ‘recovery’, it’s essential that we support the thousands of local businesses on the Central Coast,” Mr Crouch said.

“This webinar is an opportunity for business owners to receive support and advice from NSW Government representatives – with a focus on insurance, workers compensation and workplace relations.

“Business owners will also have the opportunity to participate in a live question and answer session.”

Minister for Finance and Small Business Damien Tudehope said small businesses were doing it tough and the impacts of drought, bushfires, floods and now COVID-19 had created unprecedented challenges.

“The information in this webinar will give employers a greater understanding of workplace relations and insurance related to their business, which could help them get through this difficult time,” Mr Tudehope said.

The webinar will cover topics such as:

–       Understanding health and wellbeing, the core pillars of health, and resources for the small business community,

–       Looking after yourself and each other, looking after your business, and other Government programs of interest, and

–       Recent amendments to the Long Service Leave Act, obligations relating to workplace legislation and where to obtain this information.

The NSW Small Business Commission will facilitate the webinar and speakers include representatives from the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA), NSW Office of Industrial Relations and iCare.
