New Zealand’s Parliament has passed legislation to allow domestic violence victims ten days’ paid leave from work so they can escape their partner’s abuse.

 

The country has a reputation for having one of the developed world’s highest rates of domestic violence, with police responding to an incident every four minutes.

 

The new rights are expected to take effect on 1 April. Globally, they are rare. In 2004 the Philippines granted ten days’ paid leave to those suffering domestic violence. Australia gives five days’ unpaid leave. Some provinces in Canada offer paid leave, and the federal government is considering giving five days’ paid leave nationwide.
