This is an extremely difficult time for all employers and employees. Nannies and au pairs are (except for WA) covered by the Miscellaneous Award and are entitled to all the associated benefits around leave and termination.

The Fair Work Ombudsman has a very comprehensive list of alternate scenarios that may be occurring due to the health crisis created by COVID-19.
