Do you know about the changes to unpaid parental leave entitlements?

The Fair Work Act was amended on the 26th November 2020, to include new unpaid parental leave entitlements for parents, who experience the traumatic events during or ahead of their unpaid parental leave.

In other words, this includes premature birth, stillbirth, death of a child.

It’s something we don’t want to talk about or even think about, but these changes will enable all eligible parents to access up to 30 days of their unpaid parental leave. This only applies to a child born or whose placement happens on or after 27th November 2020.

It is hard to fathom what parents go through during these traumatic events.

Even though I talk about business, bookkeeping and PAYG etc, these events do happen to so many people, which is so unfortunate and as a bookkeeper, I keep abreast with these changes which may affect you or your employee.
