Plunket encourages further progress on Paid Parental Leave

Plunket is asking the Government to consider further incremental increases in paid parental leave in future Budgets following today’s application of the financial veto to Labour MP Sue Moroney's private member's bill. The Parental Leave and Employment Protection (Six Months' Paid Leave) Amendment Bill was introduced to Parliament in April, seeking to extend paid leave from 18 weeks to 26 weeks. The Government recently increased the entitlement from 16 weeks to 18 weeks, and Plunket encourages continued increases as future Budget conditions allow, Acting Chief Executive Amanda Malu says.

At Home with baby: 26 weeks' paid leave

It’s an interesting time for the paid parental leave lobby group, 26 for Babies coalition. On 19 September the draft law aiming for 26 weeks’ paid parental leave will be back in the hands of our politicians. Plunket recommends 26 weeks’ paid parental leave to give New Zealand children the best start in life.
