    (a) provide the worker with work in accordance with the contract during the period for which the contract is binding on a number of days equal to the number of working days expressly or impliedly provided for in the contract; and
    (b) if the employer fails to provide work to the worker, pay to the worker, in respect of every day on which the employer so fails, wages at the same rate as if the worker had performed a day's work
    (2) In this section, “act of God” includes a pandemic declared by the World Health Organization.”

    It also inserts a new PART 20A - COVID RESPONSE MEASURES to provide for response measures in relation to leave entitlements during the COVID-19 period.
