Many employers recognize the emotional toll it takes on workers and implement bereavement leave policies. Offering bereavement leave is not just a legal requirement in some places but a way to support grieving employees during challenging times in their lives. This type of leave can be an important component of an employee benefits package and can positively impact employee attraction and retention. Bereavement leave acknowledges the emotional well-being of employees as they balance the demands of work with the circumstances of daily life.
