WRITTEN BY Jill Barnas

No protections currently exist for domestic and sexual assault survivors regarding leave from employment for essential services related to the abuse. Essential services include residential, health, social, and legal assistance.

SB 16 would establish unpaid leave if a person, family, or household member is a survivor of domestic or sexual violence and would require employers to maintain health coverage for the employee while on leave.
