Write a letter complaining about a policy which does not allow parents to use leave to take care of sichk children.

Dear Sir

I am writing this letter to address an issue which directly affects me and
other employees. The current policy prohibits parents from using their sick leave accumulation to take their children to the doctor, or be at home with sick children.  In most day cares, the rules are very strict about sick children as the children suffering from temperatures of (degrees), diarrhea, or vomiting will send a child home, for at least hours (number), while in case of longer illnesses, such as chicken pox or mumps, a child is sent home for up to (--) weeks. Moreover, in the case of infants and toddlers teething, ear infections, and allergies, possibility exists that these children will be sent home also to avoid spreading illnesses.

Taking it into consideration, I believe that since an employee works hard at his or her position, staying home with a sick child is not a vacation as parents must be with the sick child to take care of him/her.

Therefore, I would like to propose a change in the current policy to extend
the use of sick leave in place of vacation leave for taking a sick child to the doctor or being home with a sick child.  This would be left up to the Supervisor's discretion. Kindly look into the matter. I shall look forward to hearing from you.
