Fostering a workplace culture where employees experiencing domestic and family violence are supported at work while also having access to adequate leave contributes to a healthy and safe working environment for all.

A Domestic and Family Violence Workplace Support Policy – Guiding Principles for Agencies has been prepared by Public Sector Industrial Relations and Women NSW (Department of Family and Community Services) in consultation with the Public Service Commission.
