Bill would provide leave for domestic abuse victims

by on
in Employment Law,Human Resources

A bill before the New York Legislature would require employers to provide domestic or sexual abuse victims up to 90 days per year of unpaid leave to deal with the effects of the abuse.

Employees would be allowed to use the time to seek medical care, secure legal assistance or attend counseling or therapy.

Employees returning from leave would be guaranteed the right to be reinstated in the same or equivalent job to the one they left. Employers would be barred from discriminating against employees because of their use of the leave.

Note: If passed, employers would have to track this leave separately from federal FMLA leave since the FMLA does not cover absences for domestic abuse per se.
