so someone I work with has just had their father-in-law die,she works four days a week,is she right in thinking she is only allowed 2 days paid bereavement,then has to go unpaid or use holiday leave if she needs more time off?

Yeh that would be correct. Some Sm allow longer depending on circumstances but in general that’s what she would get from company.

It's not that simple. You can have relatives that live round the corner or hundreds of miles away. You can have relatives that you are in constant contact with or have fallen out with years ago and have not talked to them in 30 years for example.
So, for a father-in-law you have not spoken to in 30 years you may only get the funeral time, if you are going. A father-in-law you were close to you may need more time.
I was given 3 days for my brother-in-law as I am close to my sister but as I had to travel I had two travel days and a day for the funeral and I chose to add holiday to this.
It should be case by case.

Do T*sco management have a list of who you talk to and don't talk to in your family then?

No matter who it is you can have as long off as you want. It can be stressful.

I have heard different reps quoting different timescales....2 days 3 days?? I have always understood it to be a week...pro rata, and that week should also include the day of the funeral. My understanding is it covers all 1st relatives, in laws and grandparents. More extended family is at the discretion of the manager as to whether paid or unpaid, as is authorising longer paid bereavement leave up to two weeks.

SM in Express.....I always have a chat with my colleague and ask them how much time they’d like off, be it now or later for the funeral. Grim Up North, yes I am pretty close to my direct team, and at that difficult time, I’d treat them with respect and expect them to do the same to me/their colleagues. Never had an issue so far. Stay honest and treat everyone fairly.

Always worth remembering how you would expect to be treated in a similar circumstance. Families are often no longer small units with many step-parents/kids etc. Bottom line should be if the person who is deceased was in close contact with you, you should get at least a week.

What's the policy regarding an uncle? What's the process of ringing in? And do you get paid?

Didnt look sorry, why was it at the top of the listing? perhaps an auto lock of older threads would stop super necros.

Be honest with it. If you were close or a family member really needs your support then tell your manager. If you arn't close and there isnt alot of support needed for someone then don't milk it and the times you actually need time off you will get it.

Is it  the same 2/3  days if it was your father, a friend  at work who's father has passed away was told 3 days.  That does not seem long he was very upset at work is there no compassion from tesco.

Having been to a friends funeral and a family members funeral in the last 30 days, it seems at the moment that at least 14 days is passing before funerals take place.  Is approx 14 days becoming the norm ?

Can/is the bereavement leave split into two periods?

I think about 2 weeks is the norm and can even be longer if its a burial

It was four weeks for a family member for me, leave was split to support. I also moved holiday to extend my time, all arranged before going off.
