Poll: Should civil servants be entitled to time off in order to deal with a marriage breakup?

Currently, civil servants and teachers are entitled to 1.5 days paid leave at the time of a marital breakdown to help deal with legal issues.

LAST WEEK, IT emerged that Irish civil servants and teachers are entitled to paid time off to deal with the various implications of a marriage breakup.

The entitlement does not apply to gardaí, HSE employees, or local authority workers, however.

This week, civil service union Forsa will debate whether the entitlement should be stretched to three days, from the current one-and-a-half.

But do you agree with it in general?

We’re asking: Should civil servants be entitled to time off in order to deal with a marital breakdown?
