About this course:
Paid Family and Domestic Violence leave was won thanks to over a decade of sustained campaigning by feminist activists and unionists.
Unions will continue to play an important role in workplaces, ensuring employers meet their obligations when providing the leave, so that employees feel safe and supported when disclosing family and domestic violence.
This course – designed in collaboration with Unions NSW – not only covers the new legislative provisions, but most importantly equips participants with a trauma-informed approach that does no further harm when members disclose they are impacted by family and domestic violence.
Karen Willis, Gender Equity Officer Unions NSW, will facilitate the session. Karen is an expert practitioner in Family and Domestic Violence services and was instrumental in the We Won’t Wait campaign that won paid Family and Domestic Violence leave.
