Does the area. This is a little. Pain. As. Won't lose. In two years as a follow. Hello hello. Started. I mean. Okay. There. He's about movie. Story here this is gonna affect everyone listening at some. Point or another from. NBC news and elementary school principal. Source. Thing and changes. An elementary school principal whose daughter was killed. In these Stoneman Douglas high school massacre says the school district lacks empathy and transparency. April sham Trump's daughter Carmen. Was one of the seventeen who were killed in February 14. She told school board members of Broward county public schools. Where she works at worst moment on was located. That they tried to dock her pay for missed work after her daughter's death. So real quick she works for the district that is the umbrella district over the high school that was shot up and all these kids died let me let me put it more simply. She is an elementary school principal. Her daughter was shot and killed at the high school cross town. She decided to take some time off work Reid meant. After about two weeks the district started docking her play saying it's time to come back to work. She took two weeks off two. Weeks. Her daughter was slaughtered. In high school continued her husband Philip (%expletive) truck. I said that superintendent Robert currency did come to their house he did offer sympathy. And he also defended the district's actions. Quoting here. This is from. Me find out into says he. A week after my dog Americans from husband a week after my daughter was murdered mr. runs he came to my house sat in my kitchen table. Told my wife tonight the school district had done everything right. That was an outrage. Given that I was burying my sixteen year old daughter. The couple also said that these Stillman Douglas principal refused to meet with them to talk about security. The show and trips of the school gates were open twenty minutes before dismissal on that it shooting and no one was there to monitoring. But he said that violates the district security protocol. After the meeting school board chairwoman or Rupert said she was heartbroken. I feel partly responsible because I thought the district. A school board member someone would have sent notes I know I wrote some notes and went to funerals but there are no words I wholeheartedly apologize. From my part. They reinstated her pay in April. For time off through march 30 and approved a legal Babson absence. Now have quote the least impact on her leave time. Potential Roberts takes implications. Are Clark said the district had increased the law enforcement presence. Now way. So I see this story. New but is thinking I don't want to talk about a school shooting in and in that's not what I wanna talk about. Because Scott night even disagreed out in the newsroom. What is appropriate. And this is going to depend on when you what were you work. What is an appropriate. Leave. Policy. After a sudden death AM and. Depends on how far down the family tree do you go out. So if it is your mother or father you know some sometimes when it's your mom and dad you've got to go cleared estate. You get two weeks three weeks if your child is guns down in a high school all. If my child. Heaven forbid I did. You ever see me again. Like and that's your right I think this is the district where it happened and for them to be so callous to me. Some weeks is funny you know what though you've had two weeks we need you back on the tell. Us quote you need to. At some point we can't keep paying this at some point got a combat. Fourteen to its just eager. I understand and I'm sorry for. What but you're gonna say I am. I think the child may be different. With a parent. Time I think two weeks is more than enough time. I was back to work three hours after my father died. And you are an anomaly. You are no work was the way that I coped. Kept me from drinking which I think for a lot of people. Maybe you're worker be an answer saying I would not be at my dad my dad died at 3 o'clock in the morning I was worked at sex. Because that's how I coped with it. I worked a full shift. And I cried the whole talk. I was a mess so that was just the way act coped. If our I've always said when when my dog eyes I've taken a week off work you laughed at me in the newsroom. Well it if you're going to say dog gets one week and hurt. Daughter who was. Shot. In in the hallway of high school gets she's two weeks for that that's a bridge tipped Sheila what is what is fair a month. A month when it is your child a month parent. And then I think you should get some some sort of ethanol play or short term disability parent. I would agree with two weeks for for most people for apparent and her uncle. Aunt or uncle. Funeral back two days three days a cousin. I I understand your point brother or sister. Who. Two weeks two weeks for brother or sister you aren't close out of me stuff. Who earned. Your brother and with that to deal you know I'm saying like. End of this is why I'm asking is do you know what your company's policy is for bereavement is let me tell you this. I hired him to use someone to week my husband at that time. When my grandfather died very suddenly in a car wreck. Quit his job he had the most evil. Horrible boss you can imagine. My grandfather was killed very suddenly in a car wreck. And she refused to give him a day. To go to the funeral you know she said. It's not your grandparent.

You know I mean there would be maybe you know five days for mom five days for bad. And then three days for Bagram Barbara what about what if grandma raised me right. Because mom was whacked out on meth and alcohol. Why does the company get to decide how much I'm actually grieving. Which is what Gloria and up. Listen so much burden because if you're talking about hospice Scott you have to back the calendar up so not to be gruesome but. You don't you York passing dates is going to come may be two or three weeks. After. Hans yes so some maturity and some deaths are covered under FM LA. I took several weeks off when my mom passed and a couple of weeks I had to take up to spend time with her take care of horror. A few weeks to grieve. And help my freshly widowed dad. In a vineyard dealing sometimes with nursing homes and you move data doha and just what it's a parent that is a different. Ballgame depending on their age and you might have to take off to deal with those affairs. Not rod had to run so let's take some of these guys cold. I'm lying to Euro Amir hello. I got. Marketer and a large motorcycle manufacturer and play the race close but anyway. I wore a local man there why can't director here at bat. And lo and behold a month later her brother. Her brother in law act. And that it will allow your brother on your life you're no longer matter. Go to brought out. She you. Know I am not line one bit well. On a more. At. All. Ball. Well there and our art our very early. Ever yeah. On some news sentinel. Differently in that union. Bank where there aren't that. Don't I mean do your own. Ma. Well our results technically broke the law anymore and it shouldn't die. You know your your wife who you hurt hitters were eaten alive by at least here it is not law. Nice for a right. Sorry your wife to and. But he's not technically your bra yet you're not get a two for out of this one if you're like negative for out of us on this one. It's a shame he didn't beat her to because there we would've given you time off for him to do. I 76779. It was code to Aron in independence. Arum. Yeah. Our policy at my work state that it's it is day parent or sibling it's four days robbery or leave it as it is they grandparent or aunt or uncle. It's two days. And then it but it all changes that their residence in your house. You get the same amount of foreign aid parent or sibling which of the total Forte. So on and colonel cool that's basically a fly in and fly back now. Yup. And if you wanted to take three. Would you take that third day unpaid. You may have to eat at. You a bit but but that would fire you she said Guam and it takes 32. For bereavement one and paid. Now a part they do for your comment. Jeremy an independent so German. Do. I lost my grip and took a week off again. Company works construction but we don't like so. At first I don't think it would be anyway I like what you're saying how much it was. Just total outcome it is. It is you know I'm coming to an art does well. Lot or it was more like a brother that story and so. Yeah a week was partly still Pollard are low group. I'm just I'm I'm I'm sorry about your loss brother. But you bring producing points. Yeah it are you in the position where you can say I will be back when I'm OK to come back take it or leave it and I think most Americans are not. In a position agreed to say that agree it. And so you almost have to go by the company pled. Coveted playbook costs a grandparent is worth three days pair is worth Forte is a spouse is worthwhile. Cats dies of heart attack in the middle of the night tonight how long are you run a month. On month. Any broader dies tonight I'm gone for at least a week. Of course is my brother I'm gone for. But again we can say that it really is gonna come down to who do you work for where you work. And will they allow it and will they have the you know what's to fire you. If you don't come back that's what they're dealing with with this shooting. Down south and this principles saying I lost I buried my teenage daughter who was murder. I'm not ready to come back. The district said well your seat get called. You better come back to work they put it this is what's gonna happen Scott is an and you don't talk about public relations when it comes to school shooting that.
