    I also wish I knew what was happening. I'm due 22 July and I do receive 14 weeks paid maternity leave through work but it would be nice to be able to plan my leave a bit better and know how long I may or may not have to spend with my baby.

    I really feel for you ladies with babies due just into new financial year. It's really unfair and it must be so hard to plan ahead especially when you have to let employers know how long you'll want to have off.

    That's exactly my issue at the moment. My manager wants to know how long I'll be off for but I don't know... Grrrrrr!!!

    Default Has the double dipping rule passed?

    what's the deal with having to disclose how long you'll take off? isn't that standard practice to tell your employer how long you'll be off for?

    I don't have to confirm mine until 10 weeks before my due date, it's written into our agreement.

    Well if you don't know if PPL is available or not then that's 18wks variance.

    oh for those who have employer based schemes?

    I personally think it's a bit unfair to have access to both, it creates an unnecessary burden on the system. but I know that's not the point of this discussion so I'll save my views lol.

    I just get the straight 18 weeks. I'm taking 6-7 months off.

    Funny how all the women in the years before PPL was introduced were eligible for Baby bonus as well as their employer paid leave but weren't called double dippers or fraudulent.

    It really not fair they are letting it go so close to the wire as 4.5 months is quite a lot and it would mean potentially delaying a spot in childcare etc. as well as delaying going back to work. I hope there is some confirmation either way pretty soon so people can plan ahead.

    I wonder if there's a connection with people not getting employer based leave and thinking it's unfair?

    Depending on your income level ppl doesn't compensate for much of your income loss (and hence assist mothers to stay home with their bubs for very long). For a professional living in the city it probably won't cover the mortgage or rent. That's not to say people shouldn't be grateful for ppl - of course they should. Just that it's only a start - it really isn't enough to assist some women to bond with bub while staying in the workforce long term.

    I personally wouldn't like to see every mum get a crap deal just because I can only get a crap deal.
