Exempt and non-exempt staff are eligible for Bereavement Leave
. An excused paid absence of up to three days for missed work time will be granted for purposes of arranging and attending the funeral and resolving personal concerns regarding a death in the immediate family. For this policy, immediate family is defined as children, stepchildren, grandchildren, spouse, same-sex partner, parent, stepparent, parent-in-law, grandparent, brother, sister, stepbrother, and stepsister. The University will also grant up to one day of missed work time for attending the funeral of a relative beyond the definition of immediate family. CPL or vacation time may be used as additional paid time off to address a death in the family beyond the benefits described above. Any request for additional time off must be approved by the supervisor.
