We need Paid Isolation Leave Now

We are calling on the Federal Government to implement Paid Isolation Leave for all workers.

As the country begins to open up, if you need to isolate, quarantine, or cannot attend work because you or someone you care for is exposed to COVID-19, you should have Paid Isolation Leave. 

If you are exposed to COVID and need to test, trace, isolate or quarantine, you should be paid for the full isolation period without losing any income or having to use your annual or sick leave. It should be available to workers, including casuals.
