Summary

Amends the

Paid Parental Leave Act 2010
to provide that parents entitled to receive employer-provided primary carer leave payments (or other like payments) in excess of the total amount of parental leave pay will not receive parental leave pay under the Paid Parental Leave scheme; and remove the requirement for employers to provide paid parental leave to eligible employees, unless an employer chooses to manage the payment to employees and the employees agree for the employer to pay them.
