Re: Compassionate leave
My grandmother ( father side) just pass away, HR said grandmother not my immeadiate family member. Not entiltle for Compassionate leave. Please clear my doubt. TQ.
There is no provision under the Employment Act for compassionate leave. You better read the definition of "immediate family member" in the company policy or handbook. It normally states there who are the immediately members.
it is absolutely up to the company on how to define it. However, compassionate leave is just an extra benefit (bonus) to the staff, shall not much argument on it.
A lot of others companies not even grand this type of leave to employees.
