On 27 July 2018, the Fair Work Commission (Commission) issued a series of determinations inserting a clause providing for five days of unpaid domestic and family violence into all modern awards as of 1 August 2018. The government has also committed to introducing legislation as soon as possible to amend the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) to incorporate theses new leave provisions.
In a rare win for employers, the Fair Work Commission has recently taken the unusual step of ordering indemnity costs against a manager accused of HR breaches, finding she kept pressing a ‘doomed to fail’ unfair dismissal application in a bid to inflict maximum harm.
