yes that's what I mean. When you are on the 18wks PPL and unpaid leave you loose continuity of service.
The coalition spoke about preventing employers to offer their own parental scheme if the new PPL is implemented. So basically most parents would lose a minimum of 6months continuity of service. :/

I get 26 weeks pay from my employer (at 5 days a week, even though I currently work 3 days), plus the 18 week pay from the government. If the new PPL gets passed, my employer is still going to offer me these same entitlements, but if they changed it, its nit going to be because legislation makes them.

"As reported in our August 2013 update, the Federal Government is proposing to displace existing paid parental leave awards, agreements and company policies in favour of its own national scheme.
The purpose of the new policy is to prevent employees from "double-dipping" into both the Government's paid parental leave scheme and their own employer's arrangements. Relevantly, the Abbott Government plans to exercise its social welfare power, under section 51 (xxiiiA) of the Constitution, to override all such employer arrangements to achieve this goal."

It's definitely a step backwards.
