10 Days Domestic Leave Policy

I was pleased to co-sponsor Jenny McAllister‘s motion, which passed the Senate today, calling on the Morrison Government to adopt Labor’s policy of 10 days’ paid domestic violence leave.

Domestic violence leave helps workers escaping family and domestic violence – the majority of whom are women – to find accommodation, access support services, attend court and make any other arrangements to rebuild their lives. It would greatly increase the success of family and domestic violence victims in escaping from violent and abusive relationships.
