Did you know that most Victorian Universities do not provide paid domestic violence leave for casual staff?
Swinburne University is the only Victorian university that guarantees paid leave for casual staff experiencing domestic or family violence. RMIT does not exclude casual staff, but it does not guarantee paid leave.
Research shows guaranteed paid leave makes all the difference. We are asking all universities to Make the Pledge to extend DVL to all staff. During Bluestocking Week we’ll be announcing who’s taken the pledge and who needs some encouragement.
We would like to invite you to be involved in this celebration of the pledges, and help us deliver pledges at every university.
Food and drinks will be served on the night and there will be a great host of speakers--see below:
