Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Good afternoon, thank you for contacting Just Answer my name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. An employer can ask for proof that your husband was in hospital however you are not legally obliged to provide this. Your husbands medical conditions are a confidential matter which he may not want to disclose with your employer.
It is also worth mentioning that you are entitled to time off due to emergency leave and that you are allowed a reasonable amount of time off for this – but the amount of time depends on the situation.
Glad to be off assistance, we wish you all the best going forwards.
