From February 1, employees who work for large or medium businesses – including casuals – can take paid family and domestic violence leave at their full pay rate for the hours they would have worked if they were working.
Small businesses have an extra six months to adjust to the change, meaning the start date for those employees will be August 1.

Measures introduced with the legislation prevent any mention of family and domestic violence leave on a payslip.
