Time off for dependants

Author: Sara Phillips

Introduction

This line manager briefing explains the right to take time off for dependants, and aims to guide managers on dealing with employees who take time off under this right.

It should be noted that the rights and duties discussed in this briefing are the minimum statutory rights and duties. Individual employers may offer their employees contractual entitlements over and above the minimum statutory rights. Employees' contractual terms may therefore be the source of further rights and duties that line managers will be required to take into account.
