New Sign Ups
We welcome two new sign up organisations to the CRE Agreement –Geraldton Aboriginal Sporting Corporation (GSAC) and Chapman Valley Football Club. It is great to see sport becoming involved to prevent family violence and hopefully other clubs can follow their lead.
Employer guide to family and domestic violence
Fair Work Australia has released a new Employer guide to family and domestic violence.
The guide is intended to help employers understand their responsibilities towards employees experiencing family and domestic violence, and to help develop a workplace response to managing this violence.

Updates to the Residential Tenancies Legislation
WA’s tenancy and residential parks laws have now changed to support victims of family violence and help them to leave abusive relationships.
Key changes enable victims of family violence to: exit a tenancy with seven (7) days’ notice without going to court, remove a perpetrator from a lease by applying to the courts, change locks or increase security, handle disputes about property damage or unpaid rent, and have their name removed from a tenancy database blacklist.
