The Sick or Family Leave Policy is a document that outlines an employer's policy for sick or family leave. A temporary leave is a period an employee takes time off due to the employee's personal or their close relative's illness.
The purpose of the sick or family leave is for employees to recover from an illness or injury or for employees to care for their ill or injure family member.
During the leave period, the employee does not come to work or fulfill their duties as employees. Depending on the nature of the leave, the employee may be required to attend to work emails from home. Therefore, this document describes an employer's expectation for their employees during the leave period, an employee's eligibility, and the procedure for applying for a temporary leave.
