do you tink an employer will think it reasonable for me to be here to support her for a couple of days whilst she gets going on them? not sure how te law works to be honest. just worried about leaving her on her own today!!

if you explain the situation i cant see them having an issue. I know my company wouldnt ( I work for the DWP), but we have good policies around special leave for domestic emergencies or carer responsibilities. all you can do is ask. if they say yes, great. if they say no then unfortunately its a no.

hope youre mum recovers quickly.
