Producers should be aware that a new National Employment Standard (and a variation to the Pastoral Award 2020) providing 10 days’ paid domestic violence leave per annum is coming into force.

This will commence on 1 February 2023 for employees of non-small business employers (those with 15 or more employees) and 1 August 2023 for employees of small business employers (those with less than 15 employees).

All employees including part-time and casual workers will be entitled to the leave.
