As of 1 August 2018, all modern awards will include a clause that deals with family and domestic violence.

In EMA Note Issue 3, published 27 March 2018, we reported the Fair Work Commission’s decision that all modern awards will include a clause that deals with family and domestic violence leave.  After input from interested parties, the Commission has now released its model term which will be implemented in all modern awards, with effect from 1 August 2018.  The full decision (and model clause at Attachment A of the decision) can be read here.1
