As workplace changes, some firms re-examine bereavement policies
from Mississippi Business Journal
One of the most difficult passages in life is losing a family member. While most companies give employees three days off to grieve the loss of an immediate family member, recently Facebook decided to offer up to 20 days paid leave to grieve the loss of an immediate family member and up to 10 days leave after the death of an extended family member. The Facebook policy doubles the amount of time employees used to receive for bereavement. Will other companies take notice and increase bereavement benefits from the traditional three days leave?
