If you have successfully completed your orientation period and there is a death in your immediate family and you average twenty (20) hours per week a quarter or more, you will be entitled to three (3) working days off with pay. Immediate family is defined as brother, sister, grandparents, stepparents, grandchildren, stepchildren, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law.

If the death involves your husband, wife, child, or parent, you are entitled to five (5) working days off with pay.

If the death involves your brother-in-law or sister-in-law, you are entitled to one (1) working day off with pay.

If you average less than twenty (20) hours per week, you will be given the day of the funeral off with pay if scheduled. Actual time away from work must be taken to receive this benefit.

If you are away from work on a scheduled and approved vacation, the bereavement benefit will apply as it would during a normal work week.

Time paid will be based on average hours worked in the previous quarter and will not be calculated as time worked for payment of overtime premium.
