One in three Australian women will experience domestic violence. It's a staggering and frightening number.
Over 1.6 million workers now have access to paid domestic violence leave in union negotiated workplace agreements. Paid domestic violence leave recognises that employees experiencing domestic violence can least afford to take unpaid leave at a time when financial security is critical.
It's time that paid domestic violence leave was made a universal entitlement for Australian workers. That is why Australian Unions are pushing to have domestic violence leave included in all awards.
