6.1.2 Notice of Employer Determinations for PLP


If Centrelink makes an employer determination (1.1.E.60), Centrelink must give the employer and the person written notice that the employer determination has been made.

The notice given to the person that an employer determination has been made must identify the employer.

The notice given to the employer must contain the following information:

  • the name of the person claiming PLP,
  • whether a payability decision has been made and,
    • if so, the person's PPL period,
    • if not, the period expected to be the person's PPL period, and
  • the date of the notice, being the date the preparation of the notice was completed.

This information will identify the person and whether there has been a payability determination and give the employer enough information to know when the employer is likely to have to pay instalments to the person.

If Centrelink decides not to make an employer determination, Centrelink must give the person written notice advising of the decision.
