After spending 20 minuets on hold to the FAO i have given up on them.
I have a simple question.
I am going to claim Paid Parental Leave. Can i nominate to receive this directly from the government or does this need to be paid via my employer.
I am currently on maternity leave, so still employed, but would prefer if i didn't have to go through my employer. Is this my choice?

Paid Parental Leave??
10-07-2012 13:48 #2
I got mine paid through Centrelink, but only because I'd been employed for less than 12 months at my current employer. I'm pretty sure as of July 1 last year it goes through the employer, unless you are no longer employed, self-employed or had worked there for less than 12 months. BUT, I can't find any link to explain that in more detail sorry.

Don't quote me on this but I think it depends if your employer pays Parental Leave also.
Here's the link of what I was reading this morning if it helps http://www.humanservices.gov.au/cust...cheme/payments

Also found this on the Centrelink website:
Your employer will provide your Parental Leave Pay in your usual pay cycle, if you:
- have a child born or adopted from 1 July 2011 and
- have worked for your employer for 12 months or more before the expected date of birth or adoption and
- will be its employee for your Paid Parental Leave period and
- are an Australian-based employee and
- expect to receive at least eight weeks of Parental Leave Pay.

I was with my employer for 11 months and prior to that another employer. I was paid my paid parental leave directly from Centrelink. It did not go through my employer.
They just needed my payment details and I then received the installments.
My Paid parental leave started in September (when I organised it) and ran to Jan this year.
