Changes to Family and Domestic Violence Leave Entitlements - Effective 1 February 2023

UniSA is committed to supporting staff members who experience Family and Domestic Violence. From 1 February 2023, reflecting recent changes to the National Employment Standards, all continuing, fixed term, and casual staff members will have access to ten (10) days paid Family and Domestic Violence Leave per annum (non-cumulative).

All staff are eligible to access ten (10) days paid Family and Domestic Violence Leave from 1 February 2023 and the ten (10) day entitlement resets on the staff member’s employment anniversary each year.  To enable staff to access the new entitlement and appropriate support, the Special Leave Procedure has been revised and further information about the entitlement and process to apply for paid Family and Domestic Violence Leave is outlines in the Procedure.  In the event additional paid or unpaid leave is required above this new entitlement, staff members can request further support from the Executive Director: People, Talent and Culture as they do now. The revised Special Leave Procedure provides advice on the appropriate steps to take to access support.

At UniSA, we recognise that family and domestic violence is a concern both for the community and our workplace. We will continue to welcome staff members’ feedback on how we can best support them to feel safe and supported via email to  For further information on the support available for staff members who experience family and domestic violence, please contact the Strategic People Partner for your work area.
