Looking after a sick pet constitutes "serious personal grounds" for time off work, an Italian court has ruled.
The unnamed academic, from Rome's La Sapienza University, won the case partly because of Italy's animal rights laws.
She adopted Cucciola, 12, after she was found abandoned in a Rome park and took two days off to look after her as she recovered from surgery for a breast tumour and a larynx problem.
An Italian woman was granted sick pay for the time she took off while caring for her ill dog, a ruling that could have pets be recognized as "members of the family" in the future, reports said on Thursday.
The lawyers used Italy's laws to support their case citing that anyone who abandons an animal to "grave suffering" be sentenced to jail for a year and fined up to 10,000 Euros or almost $12,000, The Guardian reported.
Italian League antivivisection (one of Europe's largest organizations for the protection of animal rights) has helped the scientific employee with this case.
The court accepted the argument and ruled that La Sapienza must give the employee back pay for the two days she was absent from work.
"It is a significant step forward to recognised that animals that are not kept for financial gain or their working ability are effectively members of the family".
