    I get 12 weeks too. To be better off under the old system you'd have to earn over $215k per year though...

    I get 14 weeks full pay.

    For me if they go 26 weeks, minimum wage, no access to work ppl then I would be better off with just my 14 weeks.

    I will be better off with 26 weeks at my rate of pay ( no access to work ppl) than the current scheme.

    Ideally I would love to have my 14 weeks and the 26 weeks. Some may call it double dipping but I have specifically stuck with an employer who has a great maternity / return to work policies. They have whole recruitment emphasis around this, and have used this security as a key marketing tool to attract and retain staff.
    I could have worked for organisations where there were other benefits ( bonuses, higher salary, travel, car/phone / other allowances) so to me I don't see why we shouldn't get both. My employer, like many have promoted themselves as a family friendly environment. If women don't get access to work ppl then they may as well work for an organisation that pays more.

    I'm so lucky in having my last bub in September.

    I get 26 weeks paid from work plus 18 weeks at minimum wage from the government under the current scheme.

    If the government were to pay my 26 weeks and stop my,employer from paying it, I would absolutely be worse off under this new scheme, but I get that I'm the exception to the rule.

    @ExcuseMyFrench I'm confused. How can 26 weeks at minimal wage from centrelink be better than 12 weeks at full pay from work plus 18 weeks minimum wage from centrelink?

    The proposed scheme is 26 weeks at full wage capped at 50k payout.
    To get a 50k payout from your employer with a 12 wks maternity leave you'd have to be on 215k annual salary.

    Ah I thought it was 26 weeks at minimum wage. Let's hope it gets through then, although it's not sounding like it will.

    Yes I read that too and I must admit it made me happy for one reason : I could start TTC straight away
    No point waiting for another couple months.

    However I'm quietly cautious with articles that base their information on unnamed sources.
