14 Purpose

15 Definitions

16 Employees eligible for assistance under this Part

17 APS employee on operational support duty injured or ill

18 APS employee on operational support duty dies

19 No double benefit if workers' compensation received


Example: An employee has been injured. It is not clear whether the injury was work related or not so the member's eligibility for workers' compensation has not been determined. The employee may receive an amount under this Division.


Example: The Act may provide for payment of funeral costs for an employee who has died. Those costs have already been paid in advance under this Division. The amount paid for funeral costs through the Act was less than the amount paid in advance under this Division. The amount of advance that must be repaid to the Commonwealth is the same as the amount paid under the Act.
