Perinatal Support Program
The main purpose of the “Guide to Parental Leave for Employees and Managers” booklet is to outline the parental leave entitlements in a simple and concise manner and to promote the principles of equity and flexible working arrangements. The booklet is aimed at assisting staff in preparing for, and returning from, parental leave.
The booklet has been titled “Staying Connected” in an effort to highlight the fact that supervisors and managers play a vital role in supporting staff in all three phases associated with parental leave: the planning whilst at work, the leave – time away and the return to work.
This booklet is to be read in conjunction with the Fair Work Australia Act 2009, the Public Sector Industrial Relations Policy Manual 2010 and the relevant Certified Agreements.
