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.
