If the intent is simply that—to ensure that an employer who receives the 18-week payment to which an employee is entitled passes that payment on—then why does the guts of the amendment not simply use the words in the heading of the amendment, which are ‘does not affect’. Why does the guts of the amendment not say ‘an obligation of an employer to pay a person parental leave under this act does not affect other obligations’?
