This report relates to 1 case(s)
Qua v John Ford Morrison Solicitors  IRLR 184 EAT (4 other reports)
Employees with caring responsibilities are entitled to take 'dependants leave' when a child is ill, but employers should keep extensive records of when they are absent, says Danielle Kingdon, employment partner at Osbourne Clarke.
Employers should familiarise themselves with the recent judgment of the Employment Appeal Tribunal in Qua v John Ford Morrison, Solicitors, 2003, EAT/884/01.
