Have been asked to look into this so really just a bit of advice would be appreciated. We have an employee who is currently taking annual leave (one day a week - Monday) to care for her mother who is I believe is terminally ill. The employee in question has a significant journey to make to her mothers home and as this employee is now using what would be her weekend and an additional day to care for her parent, her manager is concerned with her well being, as in he feels she is not getting adequate rest. His query was is there anything under H&S regulations that us as employers should be aware of given her personal situation to ensure her welfare is being taken care of in terms of asking her to take a block of leave rather than one day per week. I am imagining if she is using all of her leave entitlement perhaps she cannot financially afford to avail of carers leave etc..
