Paid Compassionate Leave is generally granted by most organisations. Employees are allocated a specified amount of days a year as decided by the organisation.
Compassionate Leave does NOT accrue therefore, there is no leave balance for this type of leave. The system can track the number of compassionate days taken by an employee without accruing or recording a balance.
To get further clarification on Compassionate Leave consult the Fairwork Australia website.
To set up Paid Compassionate Leave within the system you will need to follow these steps;
