When personal illness, injury or urgent medical emergencies arise related to you or a family member, the opportunity exists for you to request a leave of absence. It allows you time and energy away from the workplace to focus on these issues. We can help you understand the law, advising you of the privileges offered to you as an employee.
Employees are entitled to take up to 10 days each calendar year for the purposes of personal illness, injury or medical emergency, or for the death, illness, injury or medical emergency or urgent matter concerning certain family members. This unpaid, job-protected personal emergency leave is available to those working for employers with at least 50 employees.
