Maternity Leave

    Recommended Posts

    It has just been announced on the news this morning that Myer, the largest Department Store in Australia (like Marks and Spencer or John Lewis) is going to offer 6 weeks paid maternity leave after staff have been with the company for 18 months, 81% of their staff are female.

     

    The company I work for offers no maternity pay at all and legally they do not have to offer you anything.

     

    So anyone thinking of having a baby over here, something to think about.

     

    You do get a one off payment from the Government though when the baby is born, $4,500 I think it is.
