Is granting carer’s leave always mandatory?


Although the circumstances in which an employer may refuse to grant such leave are not indicated directly in the provision itself, an employer will be able to reject application for carer’s leave if it contains formal deficiencies. If the application is, for example, for a relative other than a son, daughter, mother, father, or spouse, and the employee fails to show that tis person resides with them in the same household, the carer’s leave may not be granted. – Katarzyna Witkowska-Pertkiewicz comments for Dziennik Gazeta Prawna.
