Do I need to give my employer any written proof (documentation) if I take time off?

Your employer can require you to give proof that you are using leave for a reason allowed under this law. You can show proof by giving your employer:

  • a police report;
  • a copy of an application for a protection order;
  • an affidavit from victim services organization; or
  • documentation from a physician to support your use of leave.1

Your employer must keep any documentation you provide confidential.1
