Section VI - Employment Matters

VI E 5

Leave - Bereavement Leave

To state the College’s funeral leave policy

A maximum of three (3) workdays may be granted for bereavement leave for death in the employee’s immediate family. Immediate family is defined as spouse, parent, child, brother, sister, grandparent, grandchild, including step, half, and in-law relationships. If other dependents are living in the employee’s household, bereavement leave may also be taken. A leave form is used for this purpose and should be clearly marked "Bereavement Leave." Any extension of bereavement leave may be taken as vacation and/or sick leave according to the guidelines under these policies.

Any exception to this policy must be recommended by the appropriate VP to the President for approval.
