Hi everyone, I was just hoping someone could help me as I can't seem to find the information I need on the Centrelink website (and have been on hold for ages). I'm not sure how to word this right and possibly I'm over thinking but anyway....
I received Paid Parental Leave from the govt and have returned to work 1 day a week (so usually works out about 6-8 hrs a week). I went online to notify Centrelink of my returning to work but it says you don't need to until you are working more than 10hrs a week on average over a 4 wk period BUT you can choose to let them know if you want to.
What I'm wondering is the implications if:
a) I don't let them know I'm back at work because I'm working under the required hours - and
B) if I do choose to let them know - does this affect anything?
We are hoping to have a second child within in the next 2 years (fingers crossed) and I want to be eligible for Paid Parental Leave asap so I want to make sure that I meet the requirements in terms of being employed for the right length of time etc (obviously I'll need to up my hours a tad).
So really what I'm asking is does the date I nominate as return to work date affect the timing of being eligible for Paid Parental Leave.
I think I've made that as clear as mud :-)
