Protection of PPL funding amounts

A PPL funding amount is protected against sale, assignment, charge, execution, bankruptcy or otherwise until paid to the employer by Centrelink. The PPL funding amount then becomes the employer's property to do with as they wish. However, the employer has a separate obligation to pay an equivalent amount as instalments of PLP to the person on the relevant payday.
