Q. We are short-staffed due to layoffs. One of our employees wants to take more time off to attend school activities, even though we have already allowed her to attend parent-teacher conferences and a talent show. How much leave is the employee entitled to take under the Illinois School Visitation Rights Act?
A. The act allows an employee to take up to eight hours of leave during the school year. However, the employee cannot take more than four hours of leave on any day.
Furthermore, the employee can only take leave if he or she has exhausted all accrued leave time, except sick leave or disability leave. Employers are not required to pay the employee for such leave.
