LIT1 TASK 2 Situation A Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 According to the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, covered employers are required to allow their employees to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave during any 12 month period. An employee can take the unpaid leave for family or medical reasons to help balance the demands of the workplace with family needs such as the birth of a newborn child, taking a medical leave because of a serious health condition, or caring for an immediate family member with a health condition. Any previous health benefits must be maintained during the leave. Employees are eligible if they have been at the company at least 12 months and worked at least 1,250 hours during those last 12 months of employment. Since Employee A has been with the company for two years, and is taking time off to care for an immediate family member, in this case his children, he meets the requirements to be eligible for FMLA leave.
Good communication enables individuals needs to be met, it’s a fundamental skill needed to form relationships in and out of the workplace. When people limit their ability to communicate it can cause conflict which can lead to isolation and make people feel anxious.

This is where I will use positive communication skills such as listening, open ended questions and keeping my tone of voice low and soft this can help the resident feel at ease.
It is important to help to negotiate outcomes to meet the needs of both parties. Address all the important positive questions to help everyone understand the outcomes, such as ‘describe your family routine’, ‘how do you manage looking after the recipient/’, ‘what do you find most difficult or tiring? Or are you sleep OK?’ Creating understanding and acknowledging ones needs and depravations over the need of the recipient can help solve issues. Another problematic area is the feeling of guilt, where someone has a guilty feeling for putting the service user (recipient) in a care home. Again, it is important to re-assure family and significant others that in the next few weeks they will see a difference and understand that their needs are as important as other and taking care of ones own needs can help us to help those that need our help.

Should Men Get Paid Paternity Leave from Work? Parental leave is an employee benefit that allows for paid or unpaid time off after the birth or adoption of a child. In a recent poll it was shown that 72 percent of American women and 63 percent of men thought fathers should be allowed to take more that two weeks off for the birth or adoption of a child (Oxygen/Markle).
