Abstract/Citation: The regulations replace the Parental Leave and Employment Protection (forms) Regulations 1987. They prescribe information relating to applications for paid parental leave, such as the manner in which applications must be made and the information that employees and employers must give as well as the way in which annual adjustments of the maximum rate of paid parental leave will be made. The annual adjustments are in accordance with any percentage movement upwards in average ordinary time weekly earnings (employees), as determined in the Quarterly Employment Survey published by Statistics New Zealand. They also prescribe a new form of demand notice that may be used by Labour Inspectors under new section 70B of the Act.
