    hi all

    you should be able to have time off but I think it is up to the discretion of your employer to whether you can get paid for the time you take off

    nothing written about it in your employment contract?

    Think it depends on the employer and how long you have been there, some places it's two weeks, Good Luck:)

    Been in the news a lot recently regarding people who have lost their children in Iraq - there is currently no law that your employers must give you any time off at all on compassionate leave. So I am afraid you will have to just ask and see how compassionate they are.

    Really sorry for your loss and hope that your employers are compassionate.

    You will need to check your contract of employment. There is no legal minimum/maximum to an amount of time off on compassionate grounds.

    If this is not covered in your contract you can request time off but they do not have to agree. You can ask for unpaid leave or take it as holiday.

    If they dismiss you then there is a separate matter.

    depends on employer-there should be a law imho but it varies wildly-when my mum passed away I got 2 weeks paid leave,when mrs barkys dad passed away she got one day off for the funeral!-go figure!

    First of all, sorry to hear that you need to know about compassionate leave. Hope you're ok there.

    Numptyj is spot on, on the other hand you can have upto 13wks off for dependants (unpaid) if you need time with the kids.

    For compassionate leave most employees give 3 days (typically), but the rest you should be able to get as holiday or unpaid.
