Fair Work Legislation Amendment (Protecting Worker Entitlements) Bill 2023; Consideration in Detail
I move amendment (2) as circulated in my name:
(2) Schedule 2, item 49, page 11 (lines 11 to 13), omit the item, substitute:
49 Subsection 74(3C)
Repeal the subsection, substitute:
(3C) If any of the leave covered by the notice is to be taken under section 72A, the notice must specify:
(a) the total number of days (flexible days) of flexible unpaid parental leave that the employee intends to take in relation to the child; and
(b) the intended start and end dates of the leave, or each period of the leave.
For the benefit of members, I explain that the effect of amendment (2) along with amendments (4), (3) and (11) would be to expand the notice period required for flexible unpaid parental leave to include the start and end dates and the number of days at the 10-week point of notice.
