WHAT ABOUT FUNERAL ASSISTANCE?
Although Bereavement Leave is provided in Workplace Awards, it does not take into account the stress on employees and their families who are coping with death and the additional burden of arranging a funeral.
The loss of a family member (and impending funeral) can have a significant and negative impact on their work and wellbeing. In the midst of grief, those who remain must comfort one another and make time to attend to the funeral arrangements.
As a result of their emotional stress, employees who are coping with death and arranging a funeral are likely to:
- make poor decisions
- experience financial difficulty
- suffer from depression
- supervise ineffectively
- compromise workplace safety.
