This document is a policy on compassionate leave, to be included in a staff handbook. It covers leave for employees to deal with traumatic events such as bereavement or serious illness affecting a family member.
A compassionate leave policy is a set of guidelines that employers may choose to put in place in order to provide employees with paid or unpaid time off in the event of a major life event, such as the death of a close family member. The specifics of what is covered under a compassionate leave policy will vary from employer to employer, but typically the leave can be used for things like attending funerals, making arrangements, and taking care of any immediate family members who are affected by the death.
