Not really dementia related but here goes. Dad died last week after a short unexpected illness, his sister died just two days later, so next week we have two funerals to attend. My brother has been told that the factory where he works doesn't have a company policy on bereavement so he has been asked to make up a reason so he can receive sick payfor the days he has had off, and also they won't pay him for the day of Dad's, or Auntie's, funeral. I think this stinks, and shows no compassion or respect for the family. He works hard for very little pay and can't afford to lose any money - is there really no statutory bereavement entitlement for when a parent dies?
