Brown To Testify On Domestic Violence Bill

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — People who leave a job to escape domestic violence would be eligible for unemployment benefits under a measure coming before Maryland lawmakers.

Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown is scheduled to testify in favor of the legislation Tuesday in front of the Senate Finance Committee.

It would apply to someone who leaves a job because continued employment could jeopardize the safety of the person or the person’s spouse, child or parent.

Brown has made legislation to battle domestic violence a priority in recent years. In August 2008, his cousin Cathy was murdered by her estranged boyfriend.
