Campaign for paid domestic violence leave

IEU supports the ACTU’s campaign to introduce paid domestic violence leave into the industrial landscape.

The Fair Work Commission recently rejected the ACTU’s application for 10 days paid domestic violence leave to be covered under all modern awards.

The Commission did state that all employees should have access to unpaid domestic violence leave and that employees should be able to access personal/carer’s leave for domestic violence issues.

The ACTU has pledged to continue its campaign, called We Won’t Wait, for paid domestic violence leave, and is planning a day of action in August, with the date to be announced soon.
