"Facebook employees will have up to 20 days paid leave to grieve an immediate family member, up to 10 days to grieve an extended family member," Sandberg said in a Facebook post. (bit.ly/2k0imnj)

Previously, the company's employees had 10 days paid leave for immediate family and five for extended family.

Facebook also announced paid family sick time – three days to take care of a family member with a short-term illness, like a child with the flu.
