To enrol for the JobKeeper Payment go to https://www.ato.gov.au/General/JobKeeper-Payment/Employers/Enrol-for-the-JobKeeper-payment.  This page will guide you through the enrolment process and what you need to do over the coming months.

Eligible employers need to pay their employees first and then get reimbursed by the ATO in arrears.  The first payment will be received by employers from the ATO in the first week of May.

Participating employers will be required to ensure eligible employees receive, at a minimum, $1,500 per fortnight before tax.

Superannuation will be payable on the employees normal wage below $1,500 and wages paid above $1,500. It will be up to the employer if they want to pay superannuation on any additional wage paid because of the JobKeeper Payment.  For example if an employee earns $500 per fortnight but is receiving $1,500 jobkeeper it is up to the employer if they want to pay superannuation contributions on the additional $1,000.
