Workers will have access to 10 days of paid Family and Domestic Violence (FDV) leave as new laws come into effect February 1.
As the Albanese government’s first change in workplace laws, all workers in businesses with 15 or more employees will have access to 10 days of leave starting February 1, regardless of whether they work full-time, part-time or casually. For businesses with fewer than 15 employees, the same 10-day leave entitlement will start on 1 August 2023. Employees will continue to be entitled to 5 days of unpaid family and domestic violence leave until they can access the new paid entitlement.
There are also rules in place to keep workers’ information private, as FDV leave isn’t allowed to be included on an employee’s pay slip.
