4.3.3 Payment of instalments of PLP by employer


This section explains payment of instalments of PLP by employers (1.1.E.50). An employer is required to pay an instalment to a person if:

  • an employer determination (1.1.E.60) has come into force for the employer and the person, and
  • the instalment is payable to the person in relation to either a day that falls within the person's PPL period for the child or a flexible PPL day for the child that falls within the person's continuous flexible period for the child (1.1.C.145), and
  • the employer has been paid enough by Centrelink to fund the instalment.

Centrelink pays PPL funding amounts (1.1.P.180) to employers to ensure that they have been paid enough to fund an instalment.

Employers have obligations relating to paying instalments. Payment of PLP does not affect or replace any other obligations the employer has in relation to the person.
