Petition The introduction of family friendly legislation should not be delayed.
The current COVID-19 situation, as regrettable as it is, should not delay the introduction of the family friendly legislation. The Minister for Social Security should enact this legislation as soon as possible.
Every day that this legislation is delayed another family is disadvantaged by not having improvement in the workplace situation, depriving families of more choice and flexibility to help meet their work and family responsibilities. The encouragement of gender balance in childcare roles will be delayed and fathers will not be able to take a greater role in the responsibilities of a parent. The intent to put children first will be lost for a period of time that will not be recoverable for those children and families affected.
