The case manager should not use the excuse of paragraph 2.1.3 of the Guidelines for refusing provisional liability simply on the basis of information from the employer that the worker is subject to a performance management/industrial process.
Taking a redundancy package has the potential to seriously impact upon a person's entitlement to income maintenance depending on their particular situation and obtaining proper advice before agreeing to it is essential.
Often, workers are unaware that they can apply under section 35C of the Act to have their top up income maintenance continue until after they have received notice of the decision to cease their payments following a work capacity review. In fact, the best time to make a section 35C application is before the work capacity review is undertaken.
