Episode #19 – A Look at Bereavement Leave and Granting Time Off to Grieve

Bereavement leave isn’t talked about as much as certain other types of paid leave, but it is equally important and gaining traction in several states. Bereavement leave laws have recently expanded in certain jurisdictions, offering time for employees to grieve losses and navigate personally tumultuous periods. Join cohosts Josh Seidman and Meg Toth as they examine the rise in bereavement leave laws, differences between current state requirements, areas of overlap between bereavement leave considerations and other leave laws, including sick leave and family leave laws, and high level thoughts for employers on how to structure a company-provided bereavement leave policy and the importance of such policies.
