    Is that the govt pay? He def earns less than 150k lol!

    He has talked to his union rep, and according to their current EBA, it says one week, but all along he had been told two- it's very confusing!

    I'm pretty sure the government paid paternity leave is two weeks at minimum wage - I've never investigated beyond that though so I could very well be wrong.

    I assumed it was similar to the PPL in that it was in addition to any contractual entitlements.

    Parental leave comes under the National Employment Standards, which are the absolute minimum and the NES overrides EBAs and contracts (unless the EBA or contract is more generous).

    ETA - therefore, as per the NES he's entitled to 3 weeks unpaid parental leave as the non-primary carer.
    He will more than likely be entitled to the 2 weeks govt dad / partner parental leave as we'll, but that's treated as being completely seperate to unpaid parental leave (even though they're taken at the same time).

    My dh will get 3 days fully paid from his work plus 2 weeks govt paid leave @ minimum wage. Then he will take an additional 1 week and 2 days to make up 4 weeks in total of paternity leave.
