The economic fall-out from this pandemic has been far reaching. Australia has already seen widespread job losses and whole sectors effectively “brought to their knees”. In response to the crisis, the Federal and Victorian Governments have announced various stimulus packages and initiatives to hopefully mitigate the impending recession, with a particular focus on small to medium sized businesses and Australian households.
In the fourth Nicholes Family Lawyers’ podcast, Sally Nicholes, Managing Partner of Nicholes Family Lawyers joins Trevor Dymond, director of Syracuse in conversation, to discuss the various government initiatives announced in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to help us “unpack” these initiatives in further detail.
