In 2018, Nova Scotia made amendments to its Labour Standards Code to provide protected employment leave for survivors of domestic violence. As of January 2019, these survivors can take three days of paid leave, up to 16 continuous weeks of domestic violence leave, and 10 continuous or intermittent days of protected leave. In addition, a free on-line training tool on domestic violence leave was developed for employers and employees.
