NEW Massachusetts Domestic Abuse Leave

This new policy has been added to the Massachusetts Handbook Builder. The provisions reflect new legislation that requires Massachusetts employers with 50 or more employees (nationally) to permit an employee who is a victim of domestic or sexual violence (or who has a family member who is a victim) to take up to 15 days of unpaid leave from work in any 12-month period — as long as the employee is not the perpetrator of the violence.
