Aims:

Dad and Partner Pay Evaluation

The project is an evaluation of the Australian Government’s Dad and Partner Pay (DaPP) scheme. DaPP aims to create new opportunities for fathers and partners to bond with their newborn child, and allow them to take a larger share of caring responsibilities for their newborn children. The project involves assessment of leave uptake by fathers and partners, and other aspects of fathers and partners involvement with newborns, before and after DaPP’s commencement.
