Bereavement Leave


Full-time employees who suffer a death in their immediate family will be granted up to four days off with pay to travel and attend the funeral. Immediate family is defined as husband, wife, son, daughter, mother, father, brother, sister, grandparents, grandchildren, step-children, father-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, mother-in-law, brother-in-law, and sister-in-law.


Your supervisor must approve all bereavement time, and the University may request verification of the facts surrounding the leave and grant or deny the leave as deemed appropriate.  Bereavement leave will not be paid if it occurs when the employee is on vacation or leave of absence, absent due to illness or injury, or not working due to a paid holiday.


This policy applies to all the employees of the University.
