Sorry in advance if this has been asked before, i have read through everything else and couldn't seem to find an answer.
I have been with the same employer now for 3 years, and i am looking to change jobs.
If i was to leave my current employer and found out i was pregnant as soon as i started a new job, do i still qualify for PPL?
I have heard some people say that you need to have worked for your current employer for 12 months... Is this correct?

Here's the details from the site, I only called them about this last week
To meet the work test for Parental Leave Pay you must have worked for at least:
- 10 of the 13 months before the birth or adoption of your child, and
- 330 hours in that 10 month period, which is just over 1 day a week, with no more than an 8 week gap between 2 consecutive working days

For government PPL it doesn't have to be the same employer for the whole qualifying period, you can even be self employed, whatever!
The 12 month period does affect whether the new employer is required to pay you your PPL however or whether you can get it through Centrelink directly.

There are two different aspects here, ppl by government and ppl by employer.
Government pay is issued as long as you've met the work conditions doesn't need to be with the same employer.
Employer ppl does not have to be granted if you have been employed less than 12 months. This also means the conditions associated with employee protection ie you're role back when you return is not guaranteed.
