This letter serves the purpose of giving an employer notice that the employee is taking a leave of absence for Child Death and Crime-Related Disappearance. This means that an employee can take a leave of absence due to their child's crime-related death or disappearance.
Child Death and Crime-Related Disappearance Leave is a leave permitted under the law, and this means that an employee has the right to take this leave without losing job security. The length of this leave of absence depends on the Province or Territory, and whether it concerns the death or disappearance of a child. In most Provinces, the duration for child death is 104 weeks and 52 weeks for the disappearance.
The definition of child in most Provinces is anyone under the age of 18 years old. The definition of child also includes:
The employee's proof of entitlement to take this leave of absence is based on probability. This means that if it's probable that the child's death or disappearance is due to a crime, then the employee is entitled to take this leave. Employers are allowed to request reasonable proof of entitlement, which may include a police report.
HOW TO USE THIS DOCUMENT
Notice of this leave should be delivered to the employer in advance before the employee takes their leave of absence. The employee should provide proof of entitlement to this leave, which may include a police report, a death certificate, or other official document about the death or disappearance of a child.
The employee can send the letter to the employer or human resources by mail or email in PDF format. Once the employee has sent this notice to the employer, they should keep a copy for their records.
Employment law legislation is governed by each Province and Territory. For federal employees, the Canada Labour Code (R.S.C., 1985, c. L-2) applies. These laws establish the minimum requirements for a personal leave of absence that employers must afford to their employees.
