A case for an extended unpaid carer leave entitlement? – Position paper – Carer Leave – Public inquiry (pc.gov.au)
Tasmanian Carers and Families have the opportunity to make a final response to the Productivity Commission to give feedback on their Lived Experience
- when balancing work and care, including accessing leave and the capacity for flexible working arrangements.
- accessing Carer support programs, including respite and counselling.
The Commision is also seeking feedback from Carers on the provisional model for an entitlement for extended unpaid Carers leave to care for an older person that includes unpaid leave for 3-12 months (with the employee to specify the duration at the outset), with access to another period of leave 12 months after the last use.
Please forward any feedback by next Wednesday, May 3rd.
