Compassionate Leave

Compassionate Leave for Government staff should only be granted in very exceptional circumstances. All Government workers will have about 20 days leave a year. If some needs Compassionate Leave and has no annual leave left or it is all booked then they should be allowed to borrow days from the next holiday year.


Why the contribution is important

Granting staff extra leave above their allocated annual leave put more work load onto their colleagues and would be a fairer to those people who never take Compassionate Leave.

    No let's not get confused, I am sure staff don't get it lightly.

    I am not sure about this I have seen very few days allowed for only very serious circumstances

    I think the employer knows when someone 'kills off' a granny when Wimbledon is on and those who are suffering bereavement and unable to function at work. I would rather pick up the work of a collegue in need than them be forced to attend at a dark time in their life.
    And by the way,how will it save money?
