New Modern Award entitlements for family and domestic violence leave

Authored By Ms Carly Fordred

APSCo Australia has commissioned a review of its Modern Award Guides to ensure that they encompass the recent family and domestic violence leave covered by a Modern Award.

Surveys conducted by the Association have indicated many Members have workers covered by Awards and it will be important to consider how these new provisions are managed in discussions with the worker impacted, in discussions with clients and in ongoing awareness of support needed.

The requirements under the Award ae a small part of a broader talent management strategy including workforce health management, privacy/confidentiality and record keeping.

A snapshot of the requirements are available for APSCo Australia Members to download here

APSCo Australia Managing Director Julie Mills will lead a webinar discussion with subject matter experts on key steps for Members once the review of the Guides is complete.
