Do you sit at your desk day dreaming about taking a career break and want to take some time out?
If you want to take a sabbatical/career break from work, it is helpful to know your legal position before you approach your employers.
What is the law on career breaks or sabbaticals?
Simple... there isn't any law surrounding career breaks or sabbatical. The company can use their discretion and have no obligation to accept your request for a career break/sabbatical. An employee has no statutory right to take a career break or sabbatical and any agreements will have to be made between the company and the employee.
