Extended Family Leave

Protection is now in place for employees requiring extended time off work to care for loved ones at home.

Provincial legislation that passed at Queen's Park Wednesday allows for up to eight week unpaid leave to persons who must care for a family member with a serious medical condition and up to 37 weeks to deal with a critically ill child.

Parents of a missing child can get up to 52 weeks and up to two years if a child if killed in a crime-related incident.
