If the competent authority declines Child care leave stating that there is no replacement, what is to be done, especially when one month has elapsed since the date of application, there is no action on behalf of the competent authority to find any replacement & the applicant needs the leave urgently? What is to be done when the competent authority asks the applicant to apply for EOL instead of child care leave?
Can child care leave be declined on flimsy grounds?
