Funeral Leave

An employee who has a death in the family will be allowed up to the hourly equivalent of three (3) days of paid funeral leave as approved by the employee's principal, director, or department head. The family of the employee will be interpreted to include: any relative living in the household of the employee; any parent (natural, adoptive, foster, or step), spouse, child, brother, sister, step-child, step-brother, step-sister, mother-in-law, father-in-law, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, and foster child of the employee or the employee's spouse. Also included as family of the employee are the grandparent and grandchild of either the employee or the employee's spouse.

Additional funeral leave days (maximum of the hourly equivalent of two (2) days), for extenuating circumstances such as out of state travel, may be requested by the employee's principal, director, or department head through the Chief Human Resources Officer or designee. If more than the hourly equivalent of five (5) days are needed for a death in the family, the use of sick leave for additional days of funeral leave must be approved by the Chief Human Resources Officer or designee.
