Compassionate and Domestic Leave

Staff are entitled to reasonable time off for dealing with a domestic emergency or a bereavement.

Domestic Leave may be taken where a person who depends on you (such as a spouse or child) falls ill, requires care arrangements, or is involved with an incident.

Compassionate Leave is time away from work to help you come to terms with the death of a loved one.

Further information is available in the policy and guidance documents below.
