10 days DV leave now accessible for millions of Australians

Handed down by the the Fair Work Commission yesterday, millions of Australians will be afforded 10 days’ paid domestic violence leave.

The bench disputed claims from the Master Grocers Association’s that paid FDV leave would act as a disincentive to employing women, deeming the argument “mere speculation”, and noting that such conduct would be wilfully unlawful.

“Scott Morrison must now match the commitment already made by Anthony Albanese to ensure that any of the 11 million Australian workers covered by the NES who needs to escape violence has paid leave to protect their homes and income while they protect themselves and their families,” ACTU president Michele O’Neil said.
