From today, every person affected by domestic violence will be able to get the help they need and keep themselves safe without worrying about losing their jobs.

The Domestic Violence Victims’ Protection Act, which began as a member’s bill sponsored by Green MP Jan Logie, came into effect today. It provides up to ten days’ paid leave for people affected by domestic violence and access to flexible working arrangements.

“This is a win for everyone – workers, employers, and our community,” said Jan Logie.

Maram Davidson, Green Party MP

I rise to support with pride the second reading of the Domestic Violence—Victims' Protection Bill.

 

I will start with the acknowledgment and tautoko to the many members across this whole House, not the least from the Opposition benches, who have been singing, rightfully, my colleague, Jan Logie's, praises, because this is her member's bill.
