If a staff’s immediate family passed away during her maternity leave after 60 days ( given 90 days), is she entitled for additional 3 days compasionate leave on top of the 90 days given?

Your company seems to be doing very well by give 90 days maternity leave, but 90 days with pay I suppose? No, she is not entitled to compassionate leave in addition to the 90 days.

It’s misinterpreted by her superior who promised her to have 90 days in accordance to the latest announcement on this. So, we will not compensate her the 3 days. Thank you.

1. Misinterpreted, so, she will get 90 days or 60 days?

2. Compassionate leave is not provided by law. If compassionate leave is one of the benefits provided by the company, then it is up to the company to decide.
