  6. FWC approves unpaid leave

    FWC has rejected an ACTU claim to introduce paid domestic violence leave in Modern Awards but, in the alternate, approved unpaid leave with access to family leave as an option. The ACTU championed this as a win whilst employers argued for this outcome which the ACTU opposed. It is a commonsense decision.
