Paid Parental Leave · 2011

3._Paid_Parental_Leave_2011.jpgThe union campaign for a national Paid Parental Leave scheme, underway since the 1970s, is successful. The federal scheme provides 18 weeks paid leave for the primary care giver at the Federal minimum wage. Additionally, there are also two weeks of paid parental leave for partners.
