Coronavirus News: My Employer is Being Unreasonable - My Children Come First

Coronavirus News:  My Employer is Being Unreasonable - My Children Come First

If you need to take time-off from work to care for your children whilst the schools are closed, you might be shocked by your employer's reaction. They might say no.

Most employers should be supportive of the situation, if you are struggling with obtaining childcare you should first check with your employer to see if they are prepared to Furlough you which would entitle you to 80% of your gross wage. If your employer refuses to do this, then you have the following options available. You can:

  1. Work from home

  2. Take dependency leave

  3. Take parental leave

  4. Use up your annual leave

  5. Speak to your employer to see if you can come to an arrangement.

 

If you feel that your employer is not being supportive in the Coronavirus situation, then please contact Lawson West Solicitors. You might have a claim for sex discrimination.
