Some employers have agreed to providing specific rights and entitlements for workers experiencing family violence. To find out whether a particular workplace has done so, check the worker's enterprise agreement or award. The specific rights and entitlements acknowledge that family violence can have an impact on a worker's performance, productivity and safety at work.
