Time off - Family Emergency - Need Information Please...


TRIBE Member
I'm sure some of you know this. What are the rules if there is a family emergency and you need extended time off to care for a family member.

My grandfather has just been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in his kidneys. My mother needs to go to windsor to help my grandmother as he goes in for surgery and treatments.

SHe works for the catholic school board - so im sure that she can get time off. I have heard that there are laws protecting you if you need the time off? What are the rules here?

There are laws stating that your job is safe if you have to take an extended leave of absence to take care of family who are ill.

Compassionate care benefit. 8 weeks, job protection, (unpaid leave from work) but you are eligable for 6 weeks partial pay under EI

sorry to hear about your grandfather. :( good luck getting through everything
