Bereavement Leave

(Universitywide Administrative Memorandum 435.3)

You may use sick leave when you are absent from work because of the death of a member of your immediate family. Immediate family means your mother, father, sister, brother, husband, wife, child, grandchild, grandparents, in-laws, or any individual who has acted as your parent or guardian.

If you wish to attend the funeral of anyone outside your immediate family, you should make a request, as far in advance as possible, to your supervisor. Your absence will be charged to compensatory time first, then annual leave, or to annual leave if you have no compensatory time accumulated.
