Once educated there are no cons that I can see either. The issue is people don't understand the scheme and assume it's something that it's not.
I was chatting to a lady on Friday who thought it was a waste of money and why should the tax payer fund it. Once I explained it wasn't she didn't think it was that bad.

Is there any updates? I'm out of the loop at the moment

The only update is that TA mentioned that the policy wasn't a priority at the moment.

Hi I need some advice! I live in WA and have just started a new job about 1month ago but I think I am pregnant! I know I can lose my job as they can if I haven't worked there for 1 year but I want to know will I get support from government? Will I qualify for the scheme?

why would you lose your job? because of your pregnancy?
or do you mean that they don't have to get you your job back after your parental leave?
you need to have worked for 10 months out of the 13 before going on parental leave to be eligible for the scheme.

Well I search on centrelink and if you haven't worked in a job for 12months a company can get rid of you!
Ok meaning because I have only worked one month I won't get any help what so ever? Is there anything I can do?

This topic is on the paid ppl scheme given by government. Currently 18 weeks at minimum wage if you have met certain criteria.
The new scheme that is proposed is to be 6 months at the woman's rate of pay from 1st July 2015.
If you have worked 10 of the 13 months prior to the birth of bub even if you worked part time before this new job you maybe eligible for the current scheme of 18 weeks. If you've never worked then you won't be eligible.
As for 12 month rule, legally I believe your employer does not have to provide maternity leave, nor guarantee a job. They may still want you though so don't stress.
As for other benefits it will depend on your situation. Best to contact cenrerlink directly.
Ps congrats on pregnancy

I read it that her employer wouldn't have to keep her job open as she would have been there less than 12 months.
