Australian Workers are now entitled to 5 unpaid days per year for Domestic Violence Leave

From today, employees on modern awards can take up to five days of unpaid leave to deal with family and domestic violence following a ruling by the Fair Work Commission earlier this year. Under the new entitlement, family and domestic violence means “violent, threatening or other abusive behaviour by an employee’s family member that seeks to coerce or control the employee or causes them harm or fear”.
