Emergency Leave Policy & Procedure
Employees are entitled to take time off to deal with emergencies that involve dependants. The purpose of this leave is to deal with events that are not known of in advance (‘unexpected’, ‘sudden’) and can be suitably classified as an ‘emergency’.
An employee could get time off when a dependant is involved in the following emergencies:
- Illness, injury or assault
- having a baby
- disruption of care arrangements
- if their child is involved in an incident during school time
The employee must inform the employer as soon as possible about the emergency situation. If leave is prolonged, the employee must contact the employer to discuss other alternatives.
Employers are able to investigate the issue when an employee is taking emergency leave on a frequent basis. Additionally, employers can take disciplinary action if an employee is found guilty of misusing this policy.
This policy has been recently drawn and covers all the relevant statutory requirements.
This Emergency Leave Policy & Procedure is in Microsoft Word format, written in plain English, easy to use and edit.
