    HR can't insist you take theirs first. Whether or not you get extra money from Centrelink (even though paid to you by them) is irrelevant.

    They also absolutely cannot organise Govt PPL for you.

    with my employer we must take their pay first, that is why I suggested to check. Whilst on government ppl I am considered to be on unpaid maternity leave ( as in unpaid from my employer) my EBA stipulates that paid leave shall be taken before unpaid leave, therefore I cannot have government leave paid out first.

    Yes that's right you must take paid leave first but you can have the Govt paid leave at the same time as your employer paid leave. They can't insist you hold off on receiving the Govt money until your employer money has finished.

    Unfortunately with my employer this is not the case ( trust me I asked and so did my boss who was also expecting), you are lucky if you can get both each employer is different

    I find this interesting as PPL is a payment, not a leave entitlement, although you need to be absent from duty to be able to claim. I fail to see how what kind of leave you take at the time you receive the payment has anything to do with your employer.

    ETA I work in payroll in the public service.

    Exactly.

    Not doubting that's what your HR team have told you but either you have misinterpreted them or they are just wrong.

    Yes i fully understand it's a payment not a leave entitlement; to get it from MY employer I must be on unpaid leave, which my EBA stipulates must be taken after paid leave. My employer won't pay at same time either. TRUST me its been looked into even by the union ( as there was the issue if we got pregnant again before returning to work we wouldn't be eligible next time as we wouldn't have fulfilled the work test requirements).
    I don't know why I'm being bullied over this, i am not an idiot ( far from it actually) and know my own employer. obviously mine is different to yours it does happen you know. That is why I suggested she talked to her employer.
