Family and domestic violence is at crisis levels during the COVID-19 pandemic.

ASU members have led the campaign for a minimum of 10 days paid family and domestic violence leave for all workers, because we know it saves lives. Will you stand with us and sign the petition here?

If you would like to know more or participate in lobbying action to win  FV Leave please contact jkarslake@asuvictas.com.au today.

Workplaces have a key role to play in supporting women facing family and domestic violence. Paid leave can give a woman, and it nearly always is a woman, the time, financial support and job security she needs to escape and recover from an abusive or violent relationship.

That’s why we’re calling for a universal right of at least 10 days paid family and domestic violence leave legislated in our national employment standards. You can add your support by signing our petition here.

Because you can’t leave, without leave.

We Won’t Wait – Stand with us and sign the petition for a minimum of 10 paid family and domestic violence leave here.

Did you know? The first ever family and domestic violence leave entitlement was won by ASU members in Victoria. While many workers are now able to access paid leave, many still miss out. Together we can change this.

That’s where we need your help, can you help keep the pressure on the Federal Government to support a minimum of 10 days of paid family and domestic violence leave for all workers by signing our petition here?

We won’t wait because women can’t wait.

By your side,

Jame Karslake
ASU Lead Organiser
