Your Liberal government has taken the next step to provide workplace leave provisions for individuals who experience domestic, intimate partner or sexual violence.


New proposed regulations under the Employment Standards Act, provide leave of up to 10 days that could be used intermittently or continuously, and up to 16 weeks that could be used in one continuous period, of which the first five days would be paid.
