This policy sets out the arrangements for parental bereavement leave and pay in the event of the death of a child or a stillbirth occurring on or after 6 April 2020.  It entitles eligible working parents to two weeks of paid parental bereavement leave if their child or a child in their care has died or been stillborn after 24 weeks of pregnancy. It is based on the statutory right to parental bereavement leave and statutory parental bereavement pay, which were introduced with effect 6 April 2020, and enhances those statutory rights as set out in the link below:
