Child Support information for employers

Separation and your workplace

The impact of separation on the workplace can be significant for employers.

Possible impacts can include:

  • increased absenteeism
  • staff turnover
  • commercial losses, and
  • workplace accidents

As an employer of a separated parent, you can help minimise this impact and play an important role in ensuring the children of separated parents receive the support they need.

You can also refer your employees or contractors to our information for separated parents which features helpful information, links to support services, care and child support payment calculators, translated information and much more.
