Partner Pay’s Participation

Tuesday 10th September / presented by Tom Reynolds

Research into the impact of shared parental leave has shown it to have significant benefits, not just for the newborn but for all family members; however, it seems that most fathers are not taking full advantage of this time.

Only one in four new fathers use the two weeks of leave known as ‘Partner Pay” within the first year of a child’s life, and fathers make up just 5% of the people taking up the 18 weeks paid leave available for primary child carers.

Western Sydney University School of Business lecturer Dr Sarah Duffy joined RTRFM to discuss the issue.
