7.1.2 Review following receipt of an application for review


If a PLP claimant or an employer applies for review of a decision under the PPLAct, Centrelink or an ARO (1.1.A.140) must review the decision and either affirm or vary the decision, or set aside the decision and substitute a new decision.

A person cannot apply for a review of a claimant decision in their capacity as an employer. Similarly a claimant cannot apply for a review of an employer determination decision (1.1.E.70) or an employer funding amount decision (1.1.E.80).

Note: An ARO cannot review a decision of the Secretary to settle proceedings before the AAT.
