About this event

Join the Economic Security for Survivors Project for a webinar on paid sick and safe leave laws. Paid sick and safe leave laws help survivors take time to seek services, pursue a criminal or civil case, or recover from abuse.  These recently-enacted laws, where they exist, help survivors keep their jobs and maintain economic security, increased awareness will help ensure their utilization.

Experts from A Better Balance and Family Values @ Work will discuss the states, counties and cities where protections are available, who is covered, and the gaps in coverage that remain for survivors. Speakers will provide recommendations on how programs can best educate staff and clients about sick and safe leave laws, and how advocates can identify clients who may be covered by these protections and refer them to appropriate resources.
