5.1.5 Giving information after review of employer determination for PLP


Where an employer has applied for review of a Centrelink decision to make an employer determination (1.1.E.60), Centrelink must give the employer written notice requiring the employer to provide Centrelink with a written notice containing the employer's bank account details and pay cycle information for the person if:

  • either

    • the application is withdrawn, or
    • the employer determination has not been set aside and is no longer subject to review, and
  • the person's continuous flexible period (1.1.C.145) for the child has not ended. The notice given to the employer must be dated, with the date being the date the preparation of the notice was completed.

The employer is required to provide the bank account and pay cycle information within 14 days of the date of Centrelink's notice.

An employer must comply with this requirement. A failure to comply may result in a financial penalty.
