Bankwest Employee Entitlement Review

Repayments begin of $1500 parental return to work payment

Bankwest has completed their review regarding missed Parental RTW payments, and has today written to current and former colleagues who they believe are entitled to this payment of $1500. The error occurred due to the bank’s inaccurate process for recording the entitlement.

The bank has addressed the gaps in payments due to the self-service process by automating this in Sidekick. Sidekick will generate payment for eligible employees in line with the Paid Parental Leave policy.

If you believe you should receive this payment and have not received a letter from the bank, contact the Union on 1300 366 378.

Please share this information with other colleagues who you feel may also need assistance in this matter.
