    Default Change of job and PPL

    Hi ladies,

    Need some advice please. Have any of you changed jobs and gotten pregnant not long afterward? Just wanting to know if a change of job affects being able to get PPL? Do you have to be at the job for 1 year? I have worked full time before this...

    As far as I know, it doesn't matter where you have worked, or if you have changed jobs. You just need to meet the hours/month requirements. So if you left a job, didn't work for a few months until you got the new job, you probably wouldn't be eligible.

    Hope I make sense.

    It doesn't matter as long as you've worked somewhere -- the only change is that centre link will pay you your ppl instead of your employer.

    As long as you're in paid employment at least 10 of the 13 months prior to birth, for at least 1 day per week, and with no more than 8 weeks between any employment, even if it's self-employed, casual, contract etc you're eligible

    Do you mean Govt PPL or parental leave from your employer?

    If the latter then yes you need to have worked there for 12 months by your EDD in order to be entitled to have your role held for you.

    If it's the government paid leave, then the only requirement is having worked the minimum 10 months in the last 13 (which can also include medical leave with a drs certificate if for some reason yon have to finish work early for medical reasons), whether it be 1 job or 107 jobs.

    Employer paid leave isn't available everywhere, however for organisations that have it they will have their own time frames - for example my employer is 2 years, others are 1.

    If you have worked in your position for less than 12 months then your employer does not have to hold your job for you.

    I thought that too but I went to centerlink website to look for op and it actually says that centerlink will pay the remainder direct to you if you havnt been with same employer for 12 months

    I am talking about parental leave (having job kept open for you for 12 months) though - not any paid element.

    PPL and parental leave are different.
