Paid Parental Leave

Posted on 04. Jul, 2011 by andrew in News, Uncategorized, events, research

From 1 July, employers also become responsible for the administration of Paid Parental Leave entitlements (PPL) for eligible employees.

If an employee makes an application to the Family Assistence Office (FAO) for PPL, and the employee is eligible, the procedure is:

• The FAO will contact the employer to request information to enable payments to be processed.

• The FAO will make payments to employer which must be paid to the employee as if the payments were salary or wages.

To make things a little easier, employers can pre register with the Family Assistence Office online to speed up the process.
