Domestic violence leave

WLS NSW supports the We Won’t Wait campaign, which is asking that a universal right to paid domestic violence leave be included in legislation.

One of our lawyers talks about the need for domestic violence leave in this short video of frontline workers reflecting on why paid domestic violence leave is so important in ensuring women and children experiencing violence can access the time and support they need and not risk losing their job.

Today, 9 December 2016, the Premiers from all states will meet with the Prime Minister, at the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) meeting. The campaign is asking COAG to support the inclusion of 10 days paid domestic violence leave in the National Employment Standards.
