My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
There is no set time frame that they have to get back to you.
What time are you wishing to request?
You should be being paid while they make their decision.
I would suggest you see your doctor and get a medical certificate to confirm you are suffering from the stress due to the situation and in his opinion you require some time off.
You can request the time off and if you have leave available they will deduct it from that. If you have a medical certificate then it will come off your personal leave (sick leave). The doctor can specify the time and if you are not well when it is time to go back you can get a further certificate.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
