Coping

This caught my eye today. It asks a very good question.

My answer is a resounding YES. New parents have considerable statutory rights to protected leave of absence from work; the newly bereaved have very limited and ill-defined entitlements. That needs to change.

    When my first husband was very ill we were called to his bedside. My daughter was there for two days leave taken from a company which uses a big red phone as there logo. When my husband made a recovery, just for a matter of weeks I might add, and my daughter returned to work she was informed that she would have to take those days as holidays because her dad DID NOT DIE!! Rather a Direct statement.
