Death in Family
Most workplaces provide a period of bereavement leave
to employees who have experienced a death in their immediate families.
If such leave is offered, employers should have a clearly written
policy explaining how much leave time will be allowed for a death
in the family and which family members are covered. In addition to
a reasonable period of leave for the employee to make arrangements
and grieve, employers may also offer grief management services via
an employee assistance program (EAP).
