Bereavement Leave

All .50 FTE or greater employees will be granted up to five days of paid leave for the death of an immediate family member. The five days do not have to be taken consecutively. Immediate family members include spouse/partner, child/stepchildren, parent, or sibling.

In the event of the death of other close family members, employees will be granted up to 3 days of paid leave which do not need to be taken consecutively. Examples of close relatives include grandparents, grandchildren, parents of spouse/partner, or siblings of spouse/partner.

Families may be defined in other ways, and employees should discuss the need for bereavement leave with their supervisor or human resources. This benefit is prorated for employees that are less than full-time.
