Paid Parental Leave will be paid for a maximum period of 18 weeks at the National Minimum Wage (currently $569.90 per week). The introduction of Australia’s first national PPL scheme is designed to expand the availability of paid leave for parents. Paid Parental Leave should be provided to women by their employer, just like any other paid leave entitlement – annual leave, sick leave or carers leave. Employers will benefit in the long-term through the retention of skilled staff and the increased workforce participation of parents. While the government will fund the PPL scheme through the Family Assistance Office (FAO), the funds will be paid to employers who will then have the responsibility to make the payments to the employee in accordance with the employee’s normal pay cycle and will be treated as taxable income. ELIGIbILITY To be eligible for PPL, the child’s primary care giver must have worked continuously for at least 10 of the 13 months prior to the birth or adoption of the child, and must have worked for at least 330 hours in that 10 month period. Casuals, contractors and the self-employed all have access to PPL. Mothers with an income of over $150,000 a year are not eligible. Employees will need to make an application for PPL with the FAO. While a father or partner of the child’s mother may be eligible to receive PPL if they are the primary care giver, as a general rule they will not be eligible unless the child’s mother is also eligible (there are special exceptions to this general rule which the FAO can assist with). The PPL entitlement may be transferred to the partner of the mother if the mother returns to work before the entitlement is fully used. However, a separate application will need to be completed. Where an employee has multiple employers who each satisfy the conditions above, the employee must nominate which employer is to provide their parental leave pay. The start date for taking the leave can be some time after the child’s date of birth or adoption, as long as all the leave is taken within the first 12 months after the date of birth. However, it is a requirement that the primary care giver has not worked between the date of birth or adoption and the start date for PPL. PPL may be taken concurrent with or after any paid parental leave provided by an employer. PAID PARENTAL LEAVE Essential information
