Matrix has, once again, teamed up with the Disability Management Employer Coalition (DMEC), this time for a podcast discussing domestic leave laws. During this podcast, Marti Cardi and Lana Rupprecht discuss and answer questions about leave laws for victims of domestic or sexual violence and share tips, insights and best practices on this sensitive and difficult topic.

This podcast is titled "A Monumental Task: Complying with 'Safe Leave' Laws" and can be found here: Absence Management Perspectives: A DMEC Podcast. Also, check out the best practices checklist Matrix prepared with DMEC which can be found here: Leave-for-Domestic-Violence-Victims_Best-Practices-Checklist.pdf (dmec.org)

Finally, do not forget our Domestic Violence table which summarizes key portions of state domestic violence leave laws. This table provides a one-stop-shop for you to track the growing number of jurisdictions offering this type of leave and provides an overview of their requirements.
