Colorado Law Mandating Employer Leave For Domestic Violation Charges Encourages False Allegations 24-34-402.jpgby H. Michael Steinberg Author, Colorado Domestic Violence Criminal Defense Lawyer and Litigator – Email the Author at hmsteinberg@hotmail.com

Quietly a few years ago Colorado enacted a “domestic violence leave law” allowing for up to three days of leave from work for persons (almost always women) who are alleged victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking. Fortunately the law only applies to employers with more than 50 employees.

This quiet new law also encourages the employers of these women to obtain civil restraining orders against the alleged perpetrators.
