New Delaware Employment Law
Delaware provides employment protections for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking. House Bill No. 4 prohibits employers from discriminating against a victim of domestic violence, a sexual offense or stalking. Employers must provide reasonable accomodations, including allowing employees to use accrued leave originally designated for a different purpose to address the DV, sexual offense or stalking. For instance, a victim of domestic violence can use their paid sick time to get a Protection from Abuse order. The employee may be required by the employer to show a court order, a police record, or a statement from a healthcare provider or advocate certifying that they are a victim of one of these crimes. This new law provides important employment protections for victims of domestic violence. Read more.
