  • certificates of employment service from the employer

Section: Indirect evidence

Indirect evidence

To substantiate your application, you’ll need to provide evidence to Coal LSL.

Coal LSL may give some weight to indirect evidence of employment in the black coal mining industry. Indirect evidence is information or documentation that may have been created for another purpose (e.g. to complete a tax return, statements of the transactions on a bank account) or that refers to your employment but does not directly relate to whether it was employment in the black coal mining industry.

Documents that will be treated as indirect evidence include:

  • statutory declarations
  • personal tax records and group certificates
  • personal superannuation records
  • accounting records
  • bank account records
  • mine site induction records
  • other workers’ compensation records
  • apprenticeship indentures
  • separation certificates.
