Paid Family and Domestic Violence leave came into effect for workers in Australia from the beginning of February. This reform was won after years of campaigning by union members.
You can watch a video that explains how this entitlement came to exist in law here.
You can find details about the entitlement, and how to access it here at this Australian Unions blog post.
If you ever have any questions about your leave entitlements and rights, you'll never walk alone as a member of Together. You can contact your union office.
Everyone has the right to be safe - at work, and at home. Unions will continue to campaign to end the scourge of domestic and family violence forever.
