Mums and dads both have legally enforceable rights to parental leave under the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth). Our firm has a number of working mums and dads, and we are very sensitive to and aware of this issue. It matters. There are few more important times for a family to be together than when they welcome a new baby girl or boy into the fold! Companies can create a positive difference and foster enormous employee loyalty by supporting new parents.
