The form to request leave for family reasons in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic is now available.
The leave for family reasons can be split, i.e. it can be taken in hours or half-days.
Both parents cannot take leave for family reasons at the same time (same day/hour).
Days taken as leave for family reasons in this context are not deducted from the legal days of leave available per age group, the length of which depends on the age of the child.
Be reminded that on the day of their absence, regardless of the duration, the beneficiary of the leave for family reasons must notify their employer, or the latter's representative, in person or through an intermediary, either orally or in writing.
More information on which parents and children are concerned can be found in our explanatory information page.
