I hired a full time care giver to live in with my father. She requested to have 2 or 3 days off each month in a row. I agreed to this. However, now she is requesting to be paid for the time off. She has only worked for us for 3 months now. When she is off, I have to pay someone else to watch Dad or I have to stay with him and then my family & work suffer. Is there a standard or policy in the State of Illinois that says you are supposed to pay care givers for time off?
