    I think (hoping) it's only had its first reading which is why media have picked up on it again quite quickly on the 20th October. Given that we have new senators in parliament this time it was reintroduced, I don't think last times debacle would be considered as prior readings (if that's what you were thinking).

    Yay Nick. At least there's one decent pollie who thinks it would be unfair to make it effective in January

    I think as long as bub is born before the changes kick in, we'll be fine

    I'm angry they are doing this now. Saying jan 1. Atleast change the start date to July 1 next year or something so pregnant ladies now don't have to stress out about this sudden change.
    It better not change before July next yr and I will never vote liberal again. First the ppl was amazing that they said they would bring in and now completely opposite!! Aughhh

    I'm a high risk, expectant mum, hoping to be allowed to work until 28 weeks. My employer paid maternity leave (8 weeks) will keep me going until my triplets are born - if I can get to 36 weeks. The government's PPL can only start after bub is born as far as I'm aware. To my way of thinking, my employer paid leave is just that - leave that I've accumulated during my time with the company - my point is that the two payments (in my case) serve very different purposes, one in the lead up to birth and then the other will take over - so how on earth am I "double dipping"?

    You're not double dipping. It is a catch phrase that was created to demonise new mums and garner support for nasty policy. It has been successful. There has been talk at my work about "those double dippers" ripping off the tax payer. To put it in context those that have are well and truly out of baby mode with no sign of grandkids on the horizon.
