'My husband's sister's boyfriend's mother's uncle just passed away and I need to go to the funeral'
What do you do when Jenny asks for time off for a funeral? You know it isn’t her blood relative, but it is a distant relative. Bob’s father-in-law passes away and he asks for time off. Craig’s wife is ill and he needs to take her to hospital.
If you’ve granted family responsibility leave in any of these circumstances, you’re just like most managers I know. But, here’s what you don’t know...
You don’t have to give family responsibility leave in these situations!
To ensure your employees don’t take you for a ride, you need to know exactly when you have to give employees family responsibility leave and when you don’t.
Not everyone is entitled to family responsibility leave...
You probably know your employees are allowed three days paid family responsibility leave a year. But did you know you only have to give this to employees who’ve been working for you for a certain number of days a week and months? Anyone working for you for less than this isn’t entitled to these three days.
And then of course, there’s the infamous “my nanny’s off sick so I need to stay home and look after little Johnny”.
But did you know, you don’t have to give time off for this? In fact, there are only three instances when you have to give family responsibility leave.
