Domestic violence paid leave bill passes in Parliament

From Morning Report, 8:19 am on 26 July 2018

From April next year victims of domestic violence will be eligible for up to 10 days of paid leave from work per year. Legislation enacting the change was passed by Parliament on Wednesday night, and the bill's sponsor, the Green Party's Jan Logie, says National will find itself on the wrong side of history for voting against it.
