October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Despite increased understanding of this issue, more than 10 million adults experience domestic violence annually. Jurisdictions throughout the U.S. continue to add laws mandating job-protected leave — which in some instances may be paid — and providing employment protections when an employee or a family or household member is a victim of domestic and/or sexual violence or similar crimes.
Join facilitators Marti Cardi and Lana Rupprecht for a DMECommunities Q&A session where they’ll post answers to questions around leave laws for victims of domestic or sexual violence. They will also share tips on how organizations can achieve legal compliance while showing compassion and understanding for their employees during such difficult times.
This event will be conducted within the Paid Leave Group in our online networking platform, DMECommunities, and will consist of posted question and answer responses only. A presentation will not be included.
