Family Domestic Violence Leave is now law and employers need to take the steps to implement it!

February 8, 2023

In the first of what is anticipated to be a raft of industrial relations changes the Federal Government has introduced 10 paid days of family and domestic violence leave as part of the National Employment Standards. This replaces the previous 5 days of unpaid leave.

This new paid leave entitlement will commence on 1 February 2023 apart from small businesses (less than 15 employees) who will have an additional 6 month transition period.

As this entitlement is part of the National Employment Standards it will be available to all employees.

If you require advice as to how these changes may impact your business or how to implement these changes to ensure policies are up to date, please contact Quartz Consulting at info@quartzconsulting.com.au or call 1300 936 223
