32.3.1 Client in employment
Any income that a client actually earns by his or her labour is considered to be an amount earned in suitable employment and is to be included as AE.
In cases where the client is actually in employment, the Delegate has the power to deem a higher weekly AE amount where evidence exists to indicate that the client has a capacity to earn more than their actual earnings. For example, there may be evidence that the client has chosen, for lifestyle reasons, to work part-time even though they have the actual capacity to work full-time.
