NZ paid parental leave increases to 18 weeks

Posted by Greg Millar on March 7th, 2016.      0 comments

dad and bub-546Employers, if you have pregnant employees due on or after 1 April 2016 who intend to take parental leave, check they're aware of:
  1. the increase in the length of payments
  2. the form they need to complete and send to the IRD
If they've already applied and their due date is on or after 1 April 2016, the IRD will ensure they receive 18 weeks of payments.

If their baby is due before 1 April 2016 but arrives after that date, they need to let the IRD know so they can be paid the correct entitlement.
