An Australian insurance company is offering a scheme where new mums will earn twice their usual amount for six weeks after they return to work, on top of 14 weeks of standard paid parental leave.
Insurance Australia Group CEO Mike Wilkins says the scheme is designed to encourage women to return to work.
"It will ensure that we are able to retain and support our people at their time of need."
Australian Council of Trade Unions spokesman Ged Kearney is giving it the thumbs up.
She says it's great news for families:
"I would encourage all private companies to observe what happens at IAG, and how successful it is, and take it up."
IAG has a wholly owned subsidiary in New Zealand which owns the likes of State and AMI Insurance.
