Paid parental leave update

From 1 April 2016, there are further changes to paid parental leave.

The amount of paid parental leave that eligible people can take will be extended from 16 weeks to 18 weeks.

Parental leave payments will also apply to more workers. Eligibility will be extended to people in less-regular jobs, in particular to people who have recently changed jobs, seasonal and casual workers, and workers with more than one employer. ‘Home for Life’ caregivers and people with similar permanent care arrangements will also be eligible.
