Parliamentary Secretary Andy Ellul has just announced a new ‘carer’s leave’, which will allow parents to take unpaid time off to take care of an ill family member. 

These workers will be able to benefit from five days unpaid leave and will be applicable when a parent or worker has someone in the family who needs caring for due to being unwell.

The Parliamentary Secretary also revealed in a press conference that it will be available for people to take care of someone living in the same residence as them. 

The leave will not be taken from the worker’s own personal or sick leave. This comes along with other reforms to leave, which will see fathers getting 10 days paid leave on the birth of their child amongst others.

Taking to their social media, Hugo’s Group paid a touching tribute to their beloved founder Hugo Chetcuti following his passing 4 years ago.

“It has been four years since the tragic passing of our beloved founder, Hugo Chetcuti. May his legacy continue to grow thanks to his son, family, committed employees and loyal clientele.”

“If you ever had the privilege of knowing and spending time with Hugo, feel free to share your experiences and photos with us to keep his memory alive.”

His son and successor, Luke Chetcuti, also shared a touching image of Chetcuti with his grandkids, writing: ‘4 years without my best friend, mentor and father.’ 

The businessman was murdered by Bojan Cmelik after being stabbed by the latter outside one of his Paceville establishments on July 6th 2018. Cmelik has since been found guilty of murder and convicted to life in jail, with a term of solitary confinement. 

Rest in Peace Hugo.

BBC commentators had to apologize for Kyrgios’s language saying “Apologies for the language, it’s live sport, it’s tense”. The incident in question was when he asked chair umpire Renaud Lichtenstein for a first serve after two double faults saying: “It’s a f*****g joke.” Throughout the match he was seen arguing with fans and even with his girlfriend and family for their apparent lack of support.

He was fined $4,000 for an audible obscenity in front of royalty, with Prince George and Princess Kate in attendance with their son Prince George. Kyrgios had to pay two more fines throughout this year’s Wimbledon however he has not only made the money back but also received much more after winning £1,050,000 as runner-up.
