Compassionate leave

Compassionate leave will be given following the loss of a close family relative. A family member is defined as; husband, wife, partner, parents, parents in law (including partner’s parents,) guardian, son or daughter, grandchild, grandparents, brothers and sisters, aunt or uncle.

A maximum of three days will be granted where the death is of a family member and the employee is personally involved in making the funeral arrangements.

This includes time off to attend the funeral.

If you are not directly involved in making the funeral arrangements you will be granted one day to attend the funeral with additional travel time, if appropriate.
