The ASU has been advised of an overpayment claim affecting Support Workers at Council.  This occurred due to a system error where miscalculation of travel allowance was paid.

As it is an overpayment Council are within their rights to recoup the funds.  We understand that council has provided 3 possible repayment options;

  • Make a one-off payment for the total sum, as a deduction from Pay Period 18: 8/2/21 – 21/2/21.
  • Make the payment over six pay periods as a deduction commencing from Pay Period 18: 8/2/21 – 21/2/21.
  • Individual plan considering personal circumstances.

If members require assistance in negotiating an individual plan please contact the ASU on or 1300 855 570.
