    Default Granting emergency leaves

    Some big companies grant their employees with the benefit of an emergency leave. Depending on the reason, the leave can be 1 to 5 days. For a new father (whose wife had given birth) there is a paternity leave of 1 day. But for real emergency like bringing a family member to a hospital or a death in the family would require the employee to be absent, this would constitute an emergency leave that is not deducted from the vacation leave or sick leave.

    Considering that the human resource is the most valuable within any company, this is the best decision for every company. We all have emergencies, no ones is excent. Plus, having the support of your employer and workmates in times of need is very reassuring.

    In our country, apart from festive holidays, national holidays, you will get at least 12 days leave, which means you can be absent one day every month and still not be reprimanded by the boss. The 12 days leave is a paid leave, which means there will be no cut on your salary. You can either take all 12 days at once, or never take leave and get paid for these 12 days. I think 12 days is actually a long time for emergency necessities.

    A big problem exists with small companies because they might not be able to grant it. Note that a company with a short staff might be devastated by the unexpected loss of one employee, at least, financially-wise. Therefore, when someone is searching for a job, then he/she might need to take company size into consideration.

    Emergency leave is simply a way firm and companies try to show they really care for their workers and by granting such leaves, it makes other workers in the company improve their performance at the work place to prove to the company that also care for how things happen at the work place. Granting emergency leaves do not look as a bad idea when one considers how much effort the particular worker has tried to show he/she is really ready to work for the firm.

    Granting emergency leaves to workers can be seen even in football clubs where superstars of the club can be left to attend to personal issues of life if any arises such as when the father passes on and other cases. So, it is just a way that the company understand empathy intelligence.

    Companies are not required to provide emergency leaves to their employees specially if they are already provided with 15 days vacation leave and 15 days sick leave. This doesn't even include government-mandated benefits like maternity benefits and paternity benefits along with several annual holidays. It would be nice for employees to have this extra days off from work but it is not sustainable for most companies and may even constitute additional work as the emergency situation would have to be assessed before granting the leave. It will also likely affect the company's productivity specially when there are too many employees availing of the benefit at the same time.

    I have had several different types of employment and have never really gotten any clear answer on the policy towards any sort of emergency planning. I am pretty sure that this means that there is nothing really offered and would just depend on a whole lot of other factors, but I could be wrong.
