Death in Family

Death in Family Policy

Employees may be granted leave with pay for a period of up to three working days in the event of a death in the immediate family. "Immediate family" is defined as: grandparent, parent, spouse, brother, sister, child, or grandchild of the employee or the employee's spouse (step-relatives in these categories are included). Additional days must be charged to vacation leave or leave without pay. Part-time salaried employees working 50 percent time or more may receive this leave on a prorated basis.
