Domestic violence is a traumatic experience that can affect the victim’s ability to work, causing a decline in performance. If a state has a paid sick leave law, the victim may be able to use sick leave to handle issues stemming from the domestic violence. Many states have laws that protect employees who must take time off for legal matters relating to a criminal case in which they are a victim or witness. The victim may take reasonable time off to seek help if they or their family member is a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking. The time off can be taken as a single block of time, on an intermittent basis, or on a reduced schedule. Victims, families, employers, and attorneys: Know these rights! (from Conclusion)
