Paying instalment of PLP on particular payday


An employer or Centrelink is usually required to pay an instalment on a particular day.

The employer or Centrelink is taken to have complied with a requirement to pay an instalment on a particular day if the instalment is paid before that day (as might happen if the payday is a public holiday and the usual practice is to pay before the holiday) or, if payments cannot be made on the required day, as soon as practicable after that day.

Example: The employer has incorrect bank account details for the employee (1.1.E.40) and therefore cannot make the payment at the required time, or where the employer or Centrelink is required to pay the person after the start of the person's PPL period.
