Compassionate leave at UKZN

We are so impressed – the University of KwaZulu-Natal has introduced a pet-bereavement policy that allows staff a day off to mourn a departed pet.

Similar pet-bereavement and ‘pawternity’ leave (when pet owners have adopted a new pet) is becoming increasingly popular in the US, Canada, and Scandinavia.

Just goes to show that in KZN, we are ahead of the South African pack!
