Yeah ok but the purpose is not to do your regular day job.
Anyway I'm not going to argue - this is my profession and I know the legislation.
I'm certain you could get away with it though as you said. I just wouldn't risk it.
Just want to add that I called centrelink before my keeping in touch days to ask if I had to inform them, told them I had been out of the workplace for 11 months, which was the reason for my return, plus to familiarise myself with any changes that had occurred and step back into the classroom. I participated in 9 "keeping in touch days" and got paid by my employer for all of them and still got paid my ppl. Centrelink were totally fine with it.
Yes and if that was the purpose of the 10 days then it would be legitimate.
But being asked to return on a one day per week basis to do your usual job is not the same as that.
Yes there is no way they would ever know otherwise, and you could argue its semantics. But such is the world if employment law!
I personally wouldn't risk it.
Yeah I agree, I'm not one to risk anything that might not be entirely correct. I'll just have to live with it.

I guess it depends on your job as well. I'm a teacher, the only way to "refresh my skills" was to get back in the classroom on occasion.
