Bereavement Leave for Parents Who Lose a Child
BEREAVEMENT LEAVE FOR PARENTS WHO LOSE A CHILD
Yesterday I spoke out in support of Statutory Bereavement Support for Parents who lose a child.
Currently there is no requirement for employers to grant leave to parents grieving the loss of a child. Such a devastating event requires support and legal protection for all working parents, it is too important to leave to the goodwill and discretion of employers.
