JobWatch presented the webinar ‘Family and Domestic Violence and Employment Law’ on Thursday 24 June 2021.
It gives an overview of employment law topics relevant to people affected by family and domestic violence (FDV). We know that maintaining employment for people experiencing FDV is extremely important for their security, independence and self-esteem. Over the years, we have provided advice and representation to clients, usually women, whose experience of FDV has had a detrimental impact on their employment.
In this session, we examined the main employment law rights you should be familiar with when assisting people who are experiencing FDV, including:
- Right to request flexible working arrangements
- Right to certain types of leave
- Unfair dismissal
- General protections disputes
- OHS considerations
If you’re supporting clients affected by FDV and you’re trying to help them maintain their employment and financial stability, you need to know about these employment rights!
You can catch up on the webinar on Youtube now, as well as download the Powerpoint presentation.
