All employees shall be granted up to three (3) days for bereavement leave for the death of an
immediate family member. For purposes of this Policy, “immediate family member” means the
employee’s spouse, parent, child, sibling, grandparent and grandchild. This also includes all step,
half and in-law relationships.
Any leave taken beyond the three (3) days must be charged to annual, sick, or leave without pay.
An employee should notify his/her immediate supervisor when a death in the immediate family
occurs. If leave is taken beyond the three (3) days of bereavement leave, the employee and
supervisor must ensure that the employee’s job duties are adequately covered.
