Hi Work as a TA and will need to ask for two days unpaid leave every three weeks - husband to have final attempt at slowing down his terminal cancer. It has to be two days, travelling a fair way to see oncologist one day (Monday) then chemo delivered (Wednesday) and there is no way around that schedule. I've been looking at the school Absence Policy for carers but this only seems to cover emergency time off. I always thought I would be protected under the Disability Discrimination Act and have a legal right but it would seem not so. I'm a member of Unison but I can't seem to find a straight answer on their site either. Should mention, current workplace is not the happiest place to be ........ Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks.
