We recently presented the Amendments to the Fairwork Act passed in October 2022 introducing 10 Days of Paid Family and Domestic Violence Leave.

This new Leave entitlement will work differently from all the other National Employment Standard Leave types and due to its nature, extra care must be taken to ensure you meet your compliance obligations.

Our two speakers Paul Orford and Declan Ladbrooke-Bower discussed the practicalities and considerations in updating your payroll and policies brought by the changes to the Fair Work Amendment (Paid Family and Domestic Violence Leave) Bill 2022. The key highlight was employees of non-small business employers can now access 10 days of paid family and domestic violence leave in a 12-month period. Below is an excerpt of their insightful discussion.
