Paid Parental Leave...don't forget to register!

Written on the 13 January 2011

The Paid Parental Leave scheme started on 1 January 2011. The employer’s role in providing Parental Leave Pay will be voluntary until 30 June 2011. This means employers have time to make any necessary adjustments to the payroll system.

From 1 July 2011, employers will be responsible for providing Parental Leave Pay to their eligible employees who have or adopt a child from 1 July 2011, and have worked in the business for 12 months or more and are expecting to receive more than eight weeks Parental Leave Pay.

To make sure your business is ready to provide Parental Leave Pay to any eligible employees, you should register for the Paid Parental Leave scheme through Centrelink Business Online Services at www.centrelink.gov.au

An Employer Business Requirement Statement is available to assist employers, human resources staff, accountants and tax practitioners to prepare for the introduction of the Paid Parental Leave scheme.

Further information can be found at www.familyassist.gov.au or call Gavin Hanrahan or Andrew Bull on 02 4904 8000 or email us.
