Sick Leave Eligibility and Entitlement - Update 1 (Replies)


QUESTION 

Dear all,

One of our colleagues submitted a 7 days Hospitalization MC as her 6 months old daughter was hospitalised. Can she use the Hospitalization MC to offset her own Hospitalization Leave entitlement?

Thank you.

No. The Hospitalisation Leave is meant for the employee’s own hospitalisation use, not that of family members.

No. Only staff is entitled to HL, not the dependent.

Unless your company has a special leave which may include child sick, then your employee cannot use her child hospitalisation MC as her own.

No. Hospitalization leaves MC is only for the patient The parent can consider using annual leave, child care leave or even No Pay Infant Care leave is needed.

No. Sick Leave & Hospitalization leave entitlement is for the staff and not for her child. If she is absent from work during the 7 days her child is hospitalized, then she have to apply for childcare/annual leave.

We do not allow that, as only hospital MC under the employee's name can be claimed. We will advise this employee to deduct her own leave instead.

Hospitalisation leave entitlement of 60days (incl of 14 for outpatient medical leave) is only applicable for certificates issued for the employee. In this case, it’s issued for the dependant so the employee cannot use hospitalisation leave. He/she can use childcare leave (if entitled), family care leave (if company has this leave type) or annual leave to take time off from work to take care of the child.
