    Just in regards to work test requirements, I guess your talking about the 330 hrs? I understand that the ppl can be used for a next lot of work test hrs for another birth just as long as it's still 13 months before next due date

    Thats really odd because on the Human Services website re: PPL it says "the employee must be on paid or unpaid leave to recieve payments".. But i can understand why ur employer says take theirs first. My work recommended it too. !

    Just to add to my post above. It starts from births after 1 march 2014 that you can use previous ppl as hours for next ppl for a bub fairly close together

    Do you mean a business before the baby is born? If so it doesn't matter if it makes a loss or not, as long as you meet the work test requirements.

    If you mean you have started a business while on maternity leave, be very careful because you may no longer be entitled to PPL. You have to be on leave (paid or unpaid) to qualify for the PPL and running a business (loss or not) is not leave.

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.
    Wow! Cool your jets!!! Lol Just found it interesting that your employer decided to link an EBA to a government payment??

    Just a comment, no bullying intended!!

    If work is being a pain can you not tell them when you're getting ppl and get it paid directly from centrelink?
