News- Parental leave for families with 2 dads

Baby

Rainbow Families Queensland are pleased to hear the Australian Government extending paid parental leave to families with two fathers.

If eligible, the primary carer (male or female) receives 18 weeks leave at the minimum wage and the other partner (male or female) 2 weeks paid leave. For families with two fathers, the baby they care for could come from adoption, surrogacy or other arrangemens with a birth mother.

Rainbow Families Queensland is happy to see LGBTI parents receiving equal treatment and support and the positive media generated locally and around the world, especially relating to gay dads, so often overlooked in stories about rainbow families.
