Sacked worker calls for bereavement leave when family pets die
A woman who says she was sacked on the same day her family dog died has started a campaign for bereavement leave when employees lose their pets. Emma McNulty, from Glasgow, said she was too upset to work after her terrier Millie died at the weekend. Unable to find cover for her work, she said her part-time job in a sandwich shop was terminated. She has started a petition asking for employers to recognise pet bereavement in the same way as a human family member.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-49346408
