  6. Landmark agreement to support employees affected by domestic violence

    Posted 25 July 2013 by Carmel Shute (NTEU National Office)

    New protections will be available for employees who experience situations of violence in their domestic lives, thanks to a landmark agreement between Swinburne University of Technology and the National Tertiary Education Union.
