ACT NO. 49
Labor; transitional employment program;
domestic and sexual violence victims
This act establishes a transitional employment program to be administered by the Department of Labor, formerly the Department of Employment and Training, to provide wage replacement to victims of domestic and sexual violence who, as a last resort, must leave employment to avoid future violence. This program is not funded from the Social Security trust fund, but rather from the Crime Victims Restitution Fund, and provides special training regarding domestic and sexual violence for department employees who will handle applications for this program.
