    BPW Australia is opposed to the Coalition’s Paid Parental Leave (Reduction of Compliance Burden for Employers) Amendment Bill 2010 which undermines Paid Parental Leave for Australian women.

    We believe that that women who work should be treated on an equal footing with all employees – why should their maternity leave payments be treated as welfare payments? The payments via Centrelink will disenfranchise women from their employer while on paid parental leave and could have a significant impact on the number of women who return to their employer at the cessation of the leave.

    BPW Australia has lobbied the Federal Cross Bench Politicians to oppose the Bill when it is tabled in Parliament.
