Let's fight for the common good - the pets and their caretakers!
Get paid medical leave for pet care!
Animals such as dogs and cats get sick as unexpectedly as their caretakers. And when they do, they need immediate medical attention. This often means taking them to the vet for urgent care.
Have you ever had to leave work because your pet was sick? Most of us have been in this situation - and it's always a difficult decision to make. Do you go to work and risk your pet's health, or stay home and lose a daily wage? Unfortunately, for most of us, the choice is clear. We have to go to work. But what if there was another option? What if you could take paid leave to care for your sick pet? This is precisely the purpose of our petition. We believe that animals should receive the same emergency care as humans. Therefore, all employees should be given paid leave to care for their pets medical care.
Why do we need this petition?
Animals such as dogs and cats get sick as unexpectedly as their caretakers. And when they do, they need immediate medical attention. This often means taking them to the vet for urgent care. However, many employers do not recognize pet care as a legitimate reason to take time off work. As a result, employees have to choose between taking care of a sick animal or not going to work and potentially losing their jobs.
This is an unfair ultimatum that should not be given to people, especially those who are struggling to make ends meet. We believe that animals should receive the same emergency care as humans. That's why all employees should be given paid leave to provide medical care for their animals.
How this could look like?
The sick leave would include proof of an urgent veterinary procedure, such as vaccinations, medical checkups, etc. These documents would provide the employer with adequate justification for paid leave. Companies should not penalize employees for urgent care of any animal. Sick pay would include a fixed hourly rate and would be paid only for the duration of a medical emergency.
