Extra parental leave for NSW workers who split child rearing equally

The NSW public sector will offer 14 weeks’ paid parental leave under a government plan to scrap the distinction between primary and secondary carers and encourage parents to spend equal time raising their newborns.

In an effort to encourage more men to take parental leave, the NSW government will also offer employees an extra fortnight of paid leave if they evenly split the leave with their partner.

While most parents across Australia are entitled to paid primary parental leave, only 12 per cent of those who take it are men,” Premier Dominic Perrottet said.
