Your employee may return to work and keep getting their Parental Leave Pay in these cases. They don’t have to be on leave from work. This applies even for employees with a child born before 1 July 2023.
In cases of stillbirth or infant death, your employee may want us to provide their Parental Leave Pay. We’ll let you know if you no longer need to provide it.
If your employee’s child’s birth was before 1 July 2023, their Parental Leave Pay will include a Paid Parental Leave period. In cases of stillbirth or infant death, they can return to work before this period ends and keep getting their payment.
