Ontario proposes 3 new caregiver leaves

TORONTO — The Ontario government has proposed three new unpaid, job-protected leaves for caregivers. A family caregiver leave would allow up to eight weeks of leave for employees to provide care to a family member with a serious medical condition. A critically ill child-care leave would allow up to 37 weeks to care for a critically ill child. And a crime-related child death and disappearance leave would allow up to 52 weeks for parents of a missing child and up to 104 weeks for parents of a child who has died as a result of a crime.
