Member of Parliament Jan Logie supports law changes for domestic violence.

A member of parliament Jan Logie proposes a law change to domestic violence, allowing  employee to be able to have 10 days paid leave while dealing with domestic violence situtations. 

“The 10 days of paid leave in any calendar year could be used for medical appointments, legal proceedings and other activities related to family violence. Already provision for paid leave exists in some collective agreements, but for working people without access to collective organisation in union, there needs to be a minimum legal right also.”

These changes cant come soon enough and we support this proposed bill.
