Hoping for some advice about paid parental leave as I can't really trust my human resources department to give me accurate information.
We only get about six weeks of paid maternity leave at my work. I also have almost eight weeks of annual leave saved up and will apply for the government paid leave, assuming there aren't any policy changed.
Can any of the ladies tell me which order you took your leave in to maximise your entitlements and minimise tax? We're really not doing well financially so I am trying to do the best I can from the outset with this. I wonder also if I will accrue annual leave the whole time I am off work? So if I'm off for six months, will I then get another two weeks at the end of it if I have four weeks' leave a year?
