Emergency leave from work help.

I have had a phone call from mother who is 80 and she is unwell.
She is in the uk and I'm in nz with wife and daughter
My sister has booked a ticket for 2 weeks away.
I am currently employed and don't know how to approach my boss in fear of losing my job.
I was wondering they can hold my job open until I come back
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Emergency leave from work help.

nz, being New Zealand? Last I heard they don't have a family emergency leave, can you get approval from your employer if its a month out?

In youth it was a way I had, to do my best to please, And change, with every passing lad to suit his theories.
But now I know the things I know, and do the things I do; And if you do not like me so, To hell, my love, with you! --Dorothy Parker

Holidays and leave
Most employers would be understanding.

Most self-respecting employers would be more than happy to help out! Just ask!

But if they subsequently say, "No," then they're not really worth working for anyway, as their primary focus is on themselves and not on the people who keeps their livelihood going!!
