Domestic Violence Leave	
Under the Domestic Violence Leave Act, all employees 
in Washington State have the right to take reasonable 
leave to get help or help a family member with 	domestic 	
violence, sexual assault 	or stalking.

employee because the worker is an actual or perceived 
victim of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking. 
Negative actions include:
 ƒ	Discrimination.
 ƒ	Retaliation.
 ƒ	Demotion.
 ƒ	Firi ng.
 ƒ	Refusing to hire a qualified person.
 ƒ	Actions that negatively impact promotion, 
compensation or other conditions of employment.
Domestic violence leave can be used to:

permanently move, or take other actions to

family member.	
What type of leave can be used?
Employees can choose to use paid sick leave, other paid-
time off, compensatory time or unpaid leave. This leave 
can be used intermittently, in a single block of time, or 	 	
as part of a reduced work schedule.
