ACT to equalise parental leave

The ACT government is to remove discrimination against same sex partners for parental leave, according to the Sydney Star Observer.

“The ACT Government will remove the last remaining discrimination against same-sex couples and their children in territory law before it seeks re-election on 11 October, adding pressure for the federal and NSW governments to fix its laws.

ACT Industrial Relations Minister Andrew Barr announced the parental leave reforms recommended by HREOC would be introduced in June and effective by August.”
