For example, at Xero all primary carers, regardless of gender or how they become a parent, are entitled to parental leave equivalent to 26 weeks. During this time, employees on parental leave may return to work for up to 10 days, for which they are paid their usual salary, to stay in the loop at work.
Returning to work after parental or partners leave, Xero employees may choose their working arrangements for the first two months. Xero will also ‘top-up’ any government allowance or other regional support to guarantee that carers receive 100% of their base salary during this period.
