Not sure if there's anyone on here that knows how business change overs, etc work but figured I'd ask as it's a weekend so can't call up and ask.
Ok so, I started in the current position I'm in during January 2015. Employed as a full-time employee, etc.
anyways, come March/April of 2016, the business that I worked for changed entity? I think that's what it called? So it's pretty much the exact same business, all employees were kept etc, just trading under a new name and ABN. We didn't sign anything when this change happened. No new contracts, etc. just continued working how we were before.
At tax time, I received a group certificate from the "new" business and a letter/ statement from the "old" business with details of gross income and tax paid, etc.
How does this change or effect what happens when I apply for PPL? (I know I'll still be entitled, however...) Am I still considered to have worked for the same company for 12+ months, or did my employment time start over when the new business started up and the old one ceased.
If the latter is the case; does this mean my PPL won't be paid through my employer? Does this mean my employed won't have to "hold" my position for me while I'm on maternity leave?
Sorry, I'm not very business-y so not sure of all the technical terms, all I know is I still do the same job, and work for the same people, just under a "new" name or something like that
Anyone have any clue? Only just realised this might change my entitlements (hopefully not).
Thanks in advance if anyone has any idea!
