State Domestic Violence Leave Laws

More than a dozen states—including California, Florida, Illinois, Washington and the District of Columbia—have passed laws giving victims of domestic violence the right to take some time off work.

Some states allow employees to take up to a set amount of days or weeks off; other states allow employees to take a “reasonable” amount of leave or simply prohibit employers from disciplining or firing employees who take time off for reasons related to domestic leave.

The list of covered activities varies by state, but most allow time off for medical care and psychological counseling, relocation or other safety planning, and seeking a restraining order or participating in legal proceedings relating to domestic violence.
