FTP SUPPORTS PRIVATE MEMBERS BILL TO SUPPORT SURVIVORS OF DOMESTIC & SEXUAL ASSAULT 10/10/2017 9:37:26 AM
Family Transition Place Executive Director Norah Kennedy is welcoming a proposed private member's bill that would extend paid leave to people who experience domestic or sexual violence.
Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath introduce the bill late last month.
It would also provide time off for survivors to get to safety, speak to police, participate in court proceedings and get medical care including mental health care.
Kennedy says taking the time to do those things can cost someone a paycheque or even their job.
Under the proposed legislation, the province would cover the cost of extending paid leave to survivors.
