House Passes Bill To Protect Jobs Of Crime Victims

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A measure intended to protect the jobs of
crime victims who have to appear in court during the workweek has
advanced through the House.

State Rep. Joni Jenkins says the legislation forbids employers
from firing or retaliating against employees who are crime victims
when they take off work to attend court proceedings.

The Louisville Democrat also says the bill would require
employers to maintain the confidentiality of employees who have
been victimized.

The measure now goes to the Senate for consideration.
