Back at work after maternity leave and baby is sick (2nd day at work) - what do I do?


I am supposed to go to work (day no 2) after maternity leave and my baby has just sick with high fever, cough etc. What are my rights as an employee in a swiss company with american mentality?

What are my options?
1) have to use my holiday
2) take a sick day
3) work from home - normally that's possible but since it's my 2nd day and I'm still in training on a slightly different job and I don't have access from home yet

I would be interested to know if you have been in a situation like this how you dealt with it and what the response from employer is in general here in Switzerland.

Thank you!
