Australian Services Union (ASU)'s campaign for all workers to access 10 Days Paid Domestic Violence Leave
The NSW Women's Alliance supports the ASU in calling for all workers to be able to access 10 days paid domestic violence leave. We agree with the ASU that:
"Paid domestic violence leave is an important universal right all workers should have access to. We know that women have been murdered on the way to or from work because when they try to leave an unsafe home the perpetrator of violence knows where they work.
Women need to know that their workplace has a commitment to supporting them through paid leave to speak out, seek help and take action if they are affected by domestic violence. Economic dependency traps people in violent relationships.
This important workplace right will save lives."
