I suspect she means here.
Which countries are employer funded? Entirely I mean. In the UK it's shared between Govt and employer which I think makes sense.
I was saying this as a general rule. valid here there and everywhere.
A direct funding of PPL from employers would have a terrible side effect to female employment - something no one want to see happening.
Indirect funding is a different story (taxing all employers as a % of their entire payroll for instance).
Just realized something about the proposed new PPL.
If it does replace current private arrangements (employer paid parental leave) it will have a negative impact on continuity of service...
In my case of I take 6 months off work with the current scheme I would only lose 3 month continuity of service as my employer gives me 3 months of paid parental leave.
With the proposed new scheme, I'd lose the whole 6 months.
Hopefully this is something that will be addressed in the bill.
You don't lose any continuity of service while on parental leave.
Although unpaid parental leave doesn't count toward service for LSL - is that what you mean? Paid does though.
