Compassionate Leave Policy


Compassionate leave is designed to help an employee cope with the death of a close relative, deal with necessary arrangements and attend their funeral. It may also be granted where a close relative is seriously or critically ill.

This Compassionate Leave Policy sets out the process for an employee to follow when requesting compassionate leave, and covers entitlement for compassionate leave.

The Compassionate Leave Request Form should be used in conjustion with this policy.
