RE: Funeral Policy
my deepest sympathies to you and your family. its terrible, to undergo such drama in a time of mourning.
my pop passed a few years back, when i was working for a big corp. i was given all the time i wanted, without pay of course. this will happen to everyone eventually, its best to just let each person take all the time they need.
i was a high up management official and i dealt with this weekly from one employee or another. my rule was to always let the person have time off. even if it was aunt cousin, neighbor, local dealer, didnt matter. what mattered, was that if they were sad, they werent the person i wanted on my staff. so home they went, without pay, and i would call someone else to cover shifts.
the key is to always have someone hungry for hours, and well trained in many positions.
field, the boss that wants you to stay at work, is setting up for a bad lawsuit.
when i was in the navy, my grandpa passed. after failed attempts to come home, red cross got involved(thanks to my brother). they sent word to my boss (i was in scotland), that i was to be given leave, and sure enough! they(red cross) even flew me home.
i wonder if they have anything to do with the civilian sector?
