  • Removing primary and secondary carer roles
  • Further promoting equality in the workplace – designed for ‘Every Family’
  • Paid parental leave entitlement raised to 16 weeks
  • New employees are eligible to access the leave as soon as they start at Vicinity

Vicinity has today announced a progressive new parental leave policy, designed for every family, providing all parents greater opportunity to be present for the important moments in their child’s early years.

The new policy will help foster greater workplace equality and encourage cultural change both within and beyond Vicinity around traditionally gendered caregiving roles.

Vicinity CEO and Managing Director, Grant Kelley, said the new parental leave policy would help ease some of the apprehension held by primary carers while allowing secondary carers to be present for the important moments.
