Paid Parental Leave has been in place for over a year now, with the employer being the paymaster for the scheme from mid 2011. There is useful information with regard to Paid Parental Leave on the Centrelink website which is worth checking out as the scheme is wide reaching and can apply to eligible part time, casual or seasonal workers, contractors, self-employed, those working for multiple employers or those who have just changed jobs. Employers as well as individuals who want to make a claim should check eligibility carefully and seek advice if there is any doubt.
