The loss of a close family member can be devastating for an employee. Employers may consider measures to assit the bereaved employee to be allowed to morne and enable the employee to resume work duties as efficiently as possible.
Bereavement leave shall be granted to the employee without loss of wages only on the occasion of the death of the spouse, parent, son, daughter, brother or sister of the employee, and includes a person who has, or in the past had, legal custody of the employee, or a person who is in the legal custody of the employee.

Part-time employees are entitled to prorata bereavement leave.
