View Full Version : New maternity leave news...
Today I got my Public Service Association (PSA) newsletter (That's the NSW union for Govt. employees) and it says that the new 18 week allowance willl be on top of the 14 weeks paid we already get!! This is fanstastic news as I was led to believe that you would only be allowed the extra 4 weeks but this is not the case!
Will I be able to get both parental leave and employer-provided maternity leave?
Yes, you will be able to get both employer-provided and Government Paid Parental Leave.
You can take Paid Parental Leave before or after employer-provided paid leave, such as recreation leave and employer-provided maternity leave.
You can also take Paid Parental Leave at the same time as employer-provided leave.
OMG that's fantastic news, I work for the SA Government and hope to TTC next year so a huge :yelclap:.
oooh, hoping that's the same for qld gov too ... im currently on 12 months off but have used up all my paid stuff ... extra would be tops for the next bubba :yelclap:
Maybe I should wait to TTC so my bub will be born in Jan 2011 :laughing:
