Family Violence - Paid Leave and Workplace Support

This page is for: 
Public sector employers

The Western Australian Government is committed to supporting public sector employees experiencing family and domestic violence (FDV) by helping them to maintain their employment and participate safely in the workplace.

Premier’s Circular 2017/07 Family and Domestic Violence – Paid Leave and Workplace Support, issued on 18 August 2017, requires public sector employers to implement FDV paid leave and workplace initiatives.

Agencies will work to provide supportive work environments where their employees are comfortable in disclosing family and domestic violence related concerns which may impact on their work-life.

These Implementation Guidelines are to assist agencies in developing their own agency specific arrangements and procedures.
