Interpersonal violence leave is a job-protected leave of up to 10 days for survivors of interpersonal violence or survivors of any form of sexual violence to access supports or relocate to a new home. The leave consists of five employer-paid days and five unpaid days.

To be eligible, an employee, employee's child or a person for whom an employee is a caregiver must be the victim of interpersonal violence or sexual violence and the employee requires time off work to:

  • Seek medical attention;
  • Obtain services from a victims services organization;

  • Relocate, either temporarily or permanently; or
  • Seek legal or law enforcement assistance and attend court appearances.
