Oh no your child is sick? How can you get off work?

Oh no your child is sick?  How can you get off work to take care of your child? 

Where here is a summary of what you maybe entitled too.  It does depend on the type of job, resident status,  and your employers but this might help some.

If the child becomes ill, parents can use their parental leave or sick leave to be home with the child. The parental leave, which of course can be used for the illness and without any supporting evidence, is paid at 100% for the first 30 days and 30% for subsequent periods until the child is 3 years old.

If the parents child is older than 3 years of age, the parents can either take advantage of the child’s sick leave, paid at 100 % for the first thirty days per year or without pay for the  the days after that 30 days.

In addition, both parents have the right either to abstain from work during their sick child aged three to eight years, without pay, up to five days per year for each parent.

If the disease causes hospitalization leave is stopped.

Each parent has the right to take off work regardless of whether the other parent has done so.
