When a loved one dies, you may need to take time off from work to make all of the necessary arrangements. Under certain circumstances this may be possible without any deduction in wages or salary. Contact your employer to find out what applies to you.
Some employers will grant a short period of paid leave. Although an employer may have a collective agreement that entitles employees to paid leave, such rules vary from one collective agreement to another. There are also employers with no collective agreement who may grant leave in certain cases, as this is considered good labour practice.
Leave without a collective agreement
If your employee does not have a collective agreement, you and your employer will have to reach agreement on how much leave you can take. It is quite possible that your employer already has some kind of policy regarding this.
When you need to take a longer leave
If you need to take a longer period off, you may be able to take annual holidays or time in lieu. If there are reasons for doing so, you may also take sick leave and receive sick pay or sickness benefit.
