Family and Domestic Violence Leave

Family and domestic violence leave

The family and domestic violence leave entitlement for all staff members will increase to 10 days of paid leave per year as of 1 February 2023.

The legislative changes in the National Employment Standards (NES) include:

  • All staff members including casuals receive access to 10 days of paid family and domestic violence leave within a 12 month period
  • The entitlement is not pro-rated for part-time or casual staff
  • It renews annually on the anniversary of the staff member’s first day of work
  • It doesn’t accumulate from year to year

This will replace the current entitlement for full-time and part-time staff to access 5 days of paid family and domestic violence leave under the University of Adelaide’s Enterprise Agreement (2017-2021).

Information regarding the leave entitlement, support and how to submit a leave request is available on our Family and Domestic Violence webpage.
