reconciling job and family? All working parents have this challenge. What do you do when the day care center closes suddenly due to illness, the neighbor cancels at short notice and grandma is ill? Can I take my child to work?
In a nutshell: No. There is no legal right to bring your child to work. Not even if all the support ropes tear. Then the only thing that helps is working from home or taking time off. For health and insurance reasons, children are not allowed to be taken to the construction site, to the laboratory or to the assembly line in the assembly hall.
But: If you work in an office, you can ask your boss. Because most superiors will not put any obstacles in your way and will be glad that you don’t stay at home – because that means a whole day’s absence for them.
