Battered Woman Leave

| 16 February 2010
Since I already explained the solo parent leave in my last post, I will now dwell on the battered woman leave. An even more current addition to the list of statutory leaves is that which required under Republic Act No. 9262. This law which referred to Anti-Violence Against Women and their Children approved on March 8, 2004 allows the victim of violence, which may be physical, sexual or psychological, to apply for the issuance of a protection order. It will shield her from further violence and give her related reliefs. If the victim is an employee, she will be entitled to a paid leave up to ten days in addition to other paid leaves under the Labor Code, other laws, and company policies. It is also worthy to note that the leave can be extended when the necessity arises as noted in the protection order.

A requirement to apply for the battered woman leave is a certification obtained from the Barangay Captain or Kagawad or prosecutor or the clerk of court that an action based on R. A. 9262 has been filed and is pending. The use of the ten-day leave is at the option of the woman employee. It shall be used for the days that she need to attend to medical and legal concerns. Leaves not availed of are non-cumulative and not convertible to cash. Indeed, the battered woman leave is useful for women as victims of violence. Lastly, this law is only applicable in the Philippines.

hi! basically, the law is designed to protect women and their children from domestic violence...

however, there is a way that men could ask before the courts a protection order when the necessity can be had under other legislation....

you are welcome beanizer_05...
