From 1 February 2023, employees of non-small business employers (employers with 15 or more employees) can access 10 days of paid family domestic violence leave. This includes part-time and casual employees.
Employees can take this leave if they need to do something to deal with the impact of family and domestic violence.
For those eligible, the leave has been added to the National Employment Standards (NES). This means it’s now a minimum leave entitlement, like annual leave or paid sick and carer’s leave.
Refer to February Members Update for all details including payslip requirements.
