Must you provide leave to domestic violence victims?

by on
in FMLA Guidelines,Human Resources

Domestic violence isn’t always domestic. It shows up in your workplace as absenteeism, increased health costs and even violence at work. California and Maine in 1999 became the first states to enact laws providing protection or leave to employees who are victims of domestic violence. Since then, nearly half of the states have enacted similar laws.

Some states allow employees time off following incidents of domestic violence even if their injuries aren’t serious enough to trigger FMLA leave. Plus, more than 20 states allow people to collect unemployment compensation if they have to quit due to domestic violence. Several states allow domestic violence victims to use state-provided “dummy” addresses.
