Benefits and job protection: Which approach would you prefer?

by RickyP,
CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

If a new EI benefit and unpaid job-protected leave under the Canada Labour Code were introduced, which approach would you prefer:

  1. up to 6 to 12 weeks of support, available to anyone who needs to take time off work to provide care for someone with a serious illness or injury and significant care needs (20 or more hours of care per week); or
  2. up to 26 weeks of support, available to those who need to take time off work to care for someone with a life-threatening condition and a sudden need for care?

Please share your views and experience.
