Whopping great maternity leave scheme for the ACT PS.

johnboy 4 May 2009 21

Jon Stanhope has announced that the ACT Government is going to lead the way on paid maternity leave:

    “The ACT Government will introduce the nation’s most generous whole of government paid maternity leave scheme for public sector workers and double bonding leave, Chief Minister, Jon Stanhope announced today.

    The 2009-10 Budget provides funding of $7.06 million over four years to extend paid maternity leave for ACT public service employees to 18 weeks.”

On the bright side this will certainly skew the ACT PS towards fertile women who are up for it.

Which can only be an improvement.
