Bereavement Leave

Bereavement leave is available for all employees who need to take time off due to the death of an immediate family member. Immediate supervisors should be notified as soon as possible regarding the circumstances.

Also, each collective bargaining agreement outlines the amount of bereavement time allowable for the death of an immediate family member and a listing of those family members included in the definition of "immediate family."

Employees may use available sick leave for any additional time off needed.
