Spain to allow long term leave for parents of sick children

A draft law is to go before Congress which aims to allow the parents of very sick children to take indefinate absence of leave from their jobs. The law, as drafted, means that if both of the parents of the child work, one is allowed to ask for indefinate leave until the child is cured, and must be readmitted upon the child’s cure. Basic salary and social security payments must be paid during this leave.
