5.1.9 Notice of employer decisions for PLP
Centrelink must notify employers of decisions as follows.
Notice of outcome of a payability determination
Where an employer determination (1.1.E.60) is made for a person and their employer and, after the determination is made, Centrelink makes a payability determination that PLP is either payable or not payable to the person, Centrelink must notify the employer in writing about whether PLP is payable to the person and, if PLP is payable, must include the person's continuous flexible period (1.1.C.145). A decision that PLP is not payable to a person will result in the revocation of an employer determination if an employer determination had previously been made for the person and the employer (5.1.8).
Centrelink is not required to give a notice of the outcome of a payability determination if the employer determination has previously been revoked.
Notice of varying, setting aside or revoking a payability determination
Where Centrelink has made an employer determination for a person and their employer and Centrelink then varies, sets aside or revokes a person's payability determination, Centrelink must notify the employer in writing about the effect of the decision. If the effect is to change the person's continuous flexible period then a Centrelink notice must also advise of the different continuous flexible PPL period.
Centrelink is not required to give a notice of the outcome of a variation, setting aside or revocation of a payability determination, if the employer determination has previously been revoked.
Notice of other decisions
The PPL Rules may provide for Centrelink to give notices in other circumstances, containing such information as is prescribed by the PPL Rules. There are currently no provisions in the PPL Rules relating to such notices.
