In the unfortunate event that an important person in your life passes away, we are here to support you in whatever ways you need. We ask that you communicate with either your manager or the Director of Operations regarding the situation and then let us take care of everything work related while you take as much time off as you need.
We do not expect you to know in advance how much time you will ultimately need. You can resume your duties when you are ready. And if you do end up coming back to work and finding that you are not ready after all, more time can be taken. Your personal wellbeing is paramount.
