Bereavement Leave Policy

We're waiting for Mathew Crawley to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council,

Under the Freedom of Information Act, may i request information on the following please:

Please could you provide information on your policy with regard to bereavement leave entitlements.

Is there a standard policy of 'x' number of days (paid or otherwise) or is there a different approach (i.e. use of compassionate leave, annual leave etc).

Also, does any leave policy include further considerations when an employee returns to work in terms of support offered?

If the policy has changed between 2015 - 2020, could you also highlight what these changes have been.

Yours faithfully,

Mathew Crawley
