My child has fallen ill. Can I get temporary child care leave?

Employees have the right to get temporary child care leave to care for a child or to arrange care of the child. An employee can get a maximum of four working days off at a time if their child or any other child under 10 years of age living permanently in the employee’s home falls ill. Please note: In the municipal collective agreement KVTES, and in the agreements for the church and sports organisations, temporary child care leave applies to children under 12 years of age.

Check your collective agreement to see if something else has been agreed on the matter, and whether the temporary child care leave is a paid leave.
