Reduced working hours due to COVID19

Hi boards members,
Just thinking now and looking trough all available forms for unemployment due to COVID19.

My situation is a bit different to all scenarios explained on the / welfare website.

I am working on a full-time roaster that is done at least 3 weeks ahead. Now, my working hours are significantly reduced to 20h a week or less (depending on the situation in the retail store).

My contract of employment is for minimum 15 hours a week - how is that affecting my possibility to get a help from social welfare for the balance of hours cut - therefore applying for the short term work form?

If I was about to apply for short-term work support payment - my working hours are calculated as full-time employment or the amount of hours on the contract (15 in my case) therefore not allowing me to apply for the benefit?

Thank you in advance for your help.

If you need the cash, just apply now.

They'lll pay you, but you'll likely have to fill in dockets about days worked / not-worked later on, so keep records of what you did.
