Crime Victim's Leave

All employers must grant leave for employees who meet the requirements for crime victims’ leave so the employees can attend judicial proceedings.

Beginning in January of 2014, new protections were added for crime victims to attend any proceeding in which the right of the victim is at issue. There are now two types of crime victims leave — victim leave for judicial proceedings related to specified serious crimes and, as of January 1, 2014, leave for any proceeding involving victims' rights.​​​​​
