Expert advisor role with IKEA Australia
Project lead: Associate Professor Kate Fitz-Gibbon
- Access to 15 days paid leave per year for co-workers experiencing domestic and family violence
- Co-workers supporting family members experiencing domestic and family violence can also access 2 days leave
- Co-workers experiencing domestic and family violence can be supported with the development of a tailored support plan to help ensure their safety and so they can continue to be employed as part of the IKEA family. Elements of the support plan will be adapted to the specific situation but may include temporary or permanent changes to their role, work location or working hours to avoid a perpetrator, among other things.
"Working with leading family violence expert Associate Professor Kate Fitz-Gibbon, we have made changes to ensure we can better support all co-workers and their families, and in particular those who are affected by domestic and family violence."
