Your Rights

Your Rights

  • The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) included several provisions for modernizing state unemployment insurance systems, such as providing access to unemployment insurance benefits to various groups who were not previously covered by state laws, including victims of domestic violence.
  • Victims of violence often lose their jobs at least in part due to the violence they have experienced in their personal lives. Employment and Housing Rights for Survivors of Abuse (EHRSA) aims to help victims of abuse escape the cycle of violence by advocating for their employment rights. This “Quick Reference Guide” is a compilation of the “know your rights” guides and other educational materials on the specific legal rights and remedies that may be available to victims of abuse.
