Not sure if there's anyone on here that knows how business change overs, etc work but figured I'd ask as it's a weekend so can't call up and ask.
Ok so, I started in the current position I'm in during January 2015. Employed as a full-time employee, etc.
anyways, come March/April of 2016, the business that I worked for changed entity? I think that's what it called? So it's pretty much the exact same business, all employees were kept etc, just trading under a new name and ABN. We didn't sign anything when this change happened. No new contracts, etc. just continued working how we were before.
At tax time, I received a group certificate from the "new" business and a letter/ statement from the "old" business with details of gross income and tax paid, etc.
How does this change or effect what happens when I apply for PPL? (I know I'll still be entitled, however...) Am I still considered to have worked for the same company for 12+ months, or did my employment time start over when the new business started up and the old one ceased.
If the latter is the case; does this mean my PPL won't be paid through my employer? Does this mean my employed won't have to "hold" my position for me while I'm on maternity leave?
Sorry, I'm not very business-y so not sure of all the technical terms, all I know is I still do the same job, and work for the same people, just under a "new" name or something like that
Anyone have any clue? Only just realised this might change my entitlements (hopefully not).
Thanks in advance if anyone has any idea!

PPL with a business that changed entity

The company I work for has changed entity a million times 😂 It won't change anything, you are still entitled to maternity leave and PPL.

it's you who is entitled to 18 weeks ppl. it shouldn't matter which entity is paying it.
so if you received 6 weeks ppl from the "old entity", you'll still be entitled to the remaining 12 from the new entity.
there may be some admin with centrelink as they'll need to know who the new entity is as they'll need to pay your ppl to the new entity and not the old one.
but that aside, your 18 weeks should remain unchanged and you should expect to receive all of it.

So when I go into Centrelink, they'll say it will still be paid through my employer?
I asked my boss the other day and she said they don't have it set up and another lady just left on maternity leave and I know hers is being paid directly to her, but I don't think she's been there for 12 months.

I'm yet to receive it. I'm not due until beginning of December, was just wasn't sure whether this would change how it was paid to me and whether they'd legally have to have a position for me to come back to (not that I think they'd not do that anyway) but you never know these days.

If you haven't signed a new contract or had your leave paid out on changeover then its business as usual where employee entitlements are concerned - you're entitled to your job back
