Leading independent law firm McCullough Robertson has announced their decision to pay superannuation on unpaid parental leave for all permanent employees.

Under the new initiative the firm will pay up to 12 weeks of employee superannuation contributions in addition to the existing parental leave policy for all permanent employees.

McCullough Robertson’s Chairman of Partners, Dominic McGann, said he is very pleased to be announcing this industry-leading initiative for McCullough Robertson employees, maintaining the firm’s commitment to the advancement of women and lessening the gender pay gap.

Eligible employees will receive superannuation contributions of 9.5% paid in two lump sums over the course of 12 months upon return from parental leave.

“We have great people, a great work environment and our benefits come with a real commitment to ensuring employees are supported and genuinely enjoy coming to work.

Supporting our people and enabling them to have successful and sustainable careers while having the flexibility to enjoy other aspects of their lives is important to us. Our values are reflected in our suite of flexible work policies and practices and show our commitment to being an equal opportunity employer.” Mr McGann said.
