Men employed in the NSW public service will be able to claim up to 14 weeks of paid leave after the birth of their child from July 1.

Fathers who are their child’s primary carer will be able to access 14 weeks leave in the first year of their baby’s life. 

Previously, only mothers were eligible for the leave, with up to one week available for the “other” parent.

The “other parent” can now claim two weeks paid leave at the time of birth and an additional 12 weeks paid leave, which can be taken as 24 weeks half pay, in the first year.
