Care day release

Care day release or childcare leave

Staff members can take care day release for the following reasons while continuing to receive their salary:

  • To provide necessary care for an ill child (incl. adopted or foster children) independent of a common household.
     
  • To provide necessary care for an ill close family member living in the same household (spouse, partner, foster or patchwork children, grandchildren, parents, grandparents).
     
  • To accompany your biological, adopted or foster child under ten years of age in case of an in-patient stay (common household not required).
     
  • To accompany your patchwork or step child under ten years of age in case of an in-patient stay (common household required).
     
  • To care for your healthy biological, adopted or foster child if the usual carer is absent due to illness, hospital stay, death, etc. (common household not required) (childcare leave).
     
  • To care for a healthy patchwork child or step child, if the usual carer is absent due to illness, hospital stay, death, etc. (common household required) (childcare leave).

Care day release can be taken for up to a maximum of one regular working week per year (i.e. when employed full time, 40 hours per week throughout the working year). 

Care day release can be taken for full days, half days or for specific hours.

Furthermore, staff members are entitled to take a further week of care day release if there is a new case of illness of a child under the age of 12 living in the same household.
