Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, And Stalking: Taking Leave To Care For A Family Member

Domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking survivors often need time off from work to care for a family member who has a serious health condition (whether mental or physical), which is caused or made worse by the abuse. Under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act and the California Family Rights Act, those employees may be able to take up to twelve weeks of job protected (but unpaid) time off from work each year to care for a child, parent, spouse or registered domestic partner with a serious health condition. California state law provides strong privacy protections for survivors that may allow an employee to take time off from work without disclosing the domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or underlying diagnosis of the survivor to their employer.
