Can I use the days guaranteed to me under the law instead of using my vacation days or sick days?
No. Before you can take the 5 to 30 days (depending on how many people are employed by the employer), you will likely have to first use up any vacation days, annual leave, or sick days unless your employer specifically says otherwise. You can usually use the 5 to30 days granted to you under the law for domestic violence issues when you do not have any more sick/personal days left.*
