Welfare State

More Paid Leave For Mums & Grieving

Does expecting a baby or grieving over a loved one's death mean that you are sick? No, says special investigator Anna Hedborg, so they shouldn't get sick leave when off of work.

Instead, in a new report commissioned by the government, she wants new compensation letting expectant mums and the recently bereaved get paid leave. Hedborg claims it will make life easier for employers, workers and the welfare authorities.
