April 2009

Despite decades of campaigning, Australia is one of only two OECD countries that do not provide comprehensive paid parental leave. As Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard said in October last year: 'This is an issue that's been neglected for a long period of time'. In responding to the release of the recent Productivity Commission (PC) draft report into paid parental leave, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd stated: 'This Australian Government believes the time has come to bite the bullet on this and we intend to do so'. He did not however commit to addressing the issue before the 2009 Federal Budget.
