Mothers should get their income tax refunded for the previous 9 months. Easy to adminster and scales to salary

The payment should increase based on wage and circumstance, and it should apply to anyone who leaves work to care for a child. E.g. parents, guardians, caregivers, single parents, adoptive parents.

The company should pay for the parental leave at a percentage between 75-100% of their salary. Especially if they have been with the company for years and are working full time.

Yes, women who are working in higher paid jobs have contributed higher taxes therefore they should benefit from a higher parental leave amount.

Paid parental leave should be available to all parents, and ought to be proportional to the wages earned. Measures should be in place to encourage both parents to take leave, as has been trialed in Scandinavian countries.

Yes because they are contributing more to the community through taxes. If it’s not percentage based, then everyone should pay the same taxes and not have that being percentage based.

No, government maternal leave payments should be equal for all women regardless. (Some companies already provide additional maternal leave payments to retain female staff.)
