Paid Parental Leave increase

Paid parental leave for a baby expected or born, or for a child adopted, on or after 1 April 2015 can now be taken for up to a maximum of 16 weeks (previously 14 weeks). This means if baby is expected before 1 April 2015, but arrives on or after 1 April 2015, parent(s) are entitled to the extra two weeks. If baby is expected on or after 1 April 2015 but arrives before 1 April 2015, parent(s) are entitled to the extra two weeks.

Updated forms for self-employed, employees and employers will be available on IRD’s website from 18 December 2014.
