    Fairly sure he should be eligible, have a look at the family assistance office website for eligibility criteria :-)

    I still think this minimum wage business is bull, it's only good if you can combine other leave too. DH earns twice as much so we prob won't use it as we won't be able to pay the mortgage on min wage

    My DH is a self employed contractor, so long as you meet the eligibility requirements (work, pay etc on the human services website) then your eligible, It says self employed is eligible

    My hubby is a contractor so only gets paid for hours worked. For our last 2 babies he has just had 2 weeks off unpaid so he is pretty excited that at least this time he will get minimum wage for the 2 weeks.
