    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.

    Are you employed under a Modern Award?

    As I signed a contract for a set amount it's generally not award but salary.
    In saying that I think we fall under afia Australian furniture industry award
