What is the maximum limit under employment law I can take in terms of leave without pay, once all other leave has been used? I have given my employer all doctor's certificates showing I am sole carer for my husband currently battling cancer.

I do wish to return to work once he is able to look after himself, which I have advised my employer, but I am unable to determine an exact return to work date due to the extent of his cancer.
