Bereavement Leave Policy

Archived 6/9/17


When there is a death in the immediate family of an employee, a leave of absence with pay may be granted for as many as five (5) working days. The "immediate family" is defined as a spouse, child, including adopted and step child, parent, parent-in-law, sibling or legal guardian. One day of leave with pay may be granted to allow an employee to attend the funeral of a close friend or relative.
