Roubler FAQ

Can you please advise our obligations to grant Carer’s Leave in addition to Compassionate Leave after the death of a parent to assist with the care of the other parent. The employee has advised that a Stat Dec can be provided which advises that he was unfit for work.

Carer’s leave can be taken directly after compassionate leave where the employee is required to provide care or support to a member of their immediate family or household because that member is experiencing an illness, injury or has encountered an unexpected emergency (including the death). To be eligible for payment, the employee must provide evidence that would satisfy a reasonable person of the need to provide that care or support. A stat dec would suffice in this instance.
