    Default Has the double dipping rule passed?

    As title suggests just wondering if it's passed, I haven't heard anything but it was very controversial so I would t be surprised if it was snuck through

    I think it's due to go before the senate on the 15th of this month, so hopefully not much longer before we know if is been passed or not.

    Thanks I'm very bitter ( especially as I've just started maternity leave that was meant to be at my rate of pay for 26 weeks) so I hope they don't reduce it for future women

    Even if it is passed, it won't start until a while ahead in the future.

    I sincerely hope it doesn't go through, though.

    I hope this is something that will not go through. If it goes through in Juky 2016 it won't affect me (I'm due in April) but it makes me so mad that I do not want any male or female to have this taken away from them. Grrrrr! I do worry this will sneak through.

    Ok. So the government announced a budget saving measure a few months ago in regards to reforming PPL. They accused families of doible dipping (committing fraud) as they access paid parental leave from the businesses they work at in addition to PPL. According to the government that should not happen and it should be either or.

    So in my case, where I work I am entitled to 3 months paid parental leave. I get 2/3 paid to me when I start leave and 1/3 on return to work.
    So if this went through I would have to essentially choose one which means that financially it might take the choice away from me to take 6 months off and come back to work in 3 months.

    The other worry I have is that if it goes through jow many businesses will just scrap any paid parental leave now to save money.

    I thought that was the point of the PPL so mothers had more time off with their baby??
