Permitted Worker Form Download

Under Stage Four Restrictions, in Victoria, only employees who are classed as permitted workers are allowed to leave the home for work. It is also a prerequisite for childcare.

Who is eligible for a Permitted Worker Permit?

The government has released a document which lists which businesses are permitted to be open and are approved for on-site work.
