Commonwealth Parental Leave Pay scheme
An employee who is a parent may be entitled to receive financial support under the Commonwealth Government’s Parental Leave Pay scheme, which includes Dad and Partner Pay. This scheme involves financial payments made to the employee, not an additional form of leave which can be accessed by the employee.
An employee may be required to obtain information or evidence from their employer to support their application for Commonwealth Parental Leave Pay. Where an employee requests such information, it should be provided.
