Emergency Domestic Leave and Bad Weather Plans
Employees are entitled to take reasonable time off work (unpaid, unless you make other contractual arrangements) to deal with an emergency situation concerning a dependant in several clearly defined circumstances including making arrangements for the care of a sick or injured dependant.
Many people needed to take emergency leave this summer to cope with the devastation caused by the flooding in the region. It affected both businesses and their employees. Many struggled to know how to deal with absent staff - were they absent because the business was closed or because of travel difficulties or an emergency at home? Should they take annual leave to cover it? Such questions should be considered as part of any emergency planning process and covered in your Employee Handbook so employees know what will happen in such circumstances.
