Family care leave being exhausted: FCEF
March 26, 2019 4:45 pm
The Fiji Commerce and Employers Federation says some employees have used up almost 90 percent of the family care leave entitlements.
Chief Executive Nesbitt Hazelman says this is a cause for concern as we are only into the third month of the year.
Hazelman says its members are worried about this trend.
“Comments we have received from our various council’s, in some areas, some organizations, staff have taken 90% of the provision. So we are only three months in the year, and we are seeing this sort of numbers coming through.”
Family care leave was introduced this year which allows people to take five days off to take care of their sick parents and family members.
