An employee may take paid personal/carer's leave if the leave is taken:
(a) because the employee is not fit for work because of a personal illness, or personal injury, affecting the employee; or
(b) to provide care or support to a member of the employee's immediate family, or a member of the employee's household, who requires care or support because of:
(i) a personal illness, or personal injury, affecting the member; or
(ii) an unexpected emergency affecting the member.
Note 1: The notice and evidence requirements of section 107 must be complied with.
Note 2: If a female employee has an entitlement to paid personal/carer's leave, she may take that leave instead of taking unpaid special maternity leave under section 80.
