8.1 Internal review of decisions
This chapter is about internal review of decisions made by officers under the PPLAct. There are 3 types of internal reviews where:
- Centrelink reviews decisions on their own initiative
- a claimant whose interests are affected by a clamant decision (1.1.C.110) applies for internal review of the decision
- an employer applies for internal review either of an employer determination decision (1.1.E.70) or an employer funding amount decision (1.1.E.80).
Note: Centrelink cannot, on their own initiative, review an employer determination decision. A decision to make an employer determination can only be internally reviewed if requested by the employer.
