Discrimination and Retaliation Protections for the Unemployed: Employers in the District of Columbia must comply with a number of local laws regarding employees. These range from the D.C. Human Rights Act, which largely mirrors Title VII and similar federal laws, but specifically covers sexual orientation and political affiliation; to the D.C. Paid Sick Leave Act (DC Code § 32-131.02), requiring paid sick leave for employees based on the employer’s size; and the D.C. Family and Medical Leave Act (D.C. Code § 32 509), providing up to 16 weeks of unpaid leave in a 24-month period.
