Also use Bindle to book parental leave
Following hot on the heels of adding the ability to make compassionate leave bookings in Bindle, we’ve added maternity & parental leave as well.
All Australian employees (including casual employees) after 12 months employment are entitled to 12 months unpaid maternity & parental leave when a child is born or adopted.
Maternity & parental leave can be taken when you or your partner give birth or adopt a child that is under 16 years of age and you’re the primary care giver.
Most people also qualify for paid parental leave for up to 18 weeks at the national minimum wage. This is paid by the government through your employer.
As always, you can find out more from the Australian Fair Work Ombudsman
Employees book parental leave just like they book annual leave - by clicking or tapping Make A Booking, selecting the required leave type and entering their dates. No biggie.
