In the event of the death of an immediate family member, the employee is allowed a maximum of three days bereavement leave with pay. Immediate family is defined as spouse, children, parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, and parents-in-law.

For attendance at a funeral for the death of a non-immediate family member or friend, permission is granted for up to two hours of funeral leave with pay. For absences of more than one day, employees may use vacation days if available.
