Epstein Becker Green Link to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
Sept. 19, 2014
"The law does leave a few aspects up to the employer's discretion. First, the employer has the sole discretion to determine if domestic violence leave will be paid or unpaid, assuming it is applied in a nondiscriminatory matter. Second, the employer decides whether an employee must take all available paid time off (i.e., sick, personal, and vacation days) before requesting domestic violence leave. And, third, the employer decides if it will require an employee to provide documentation substantiating the need for leave under this new law."
