Upon the death of an employee's immediate family member, defined as wife, husband, registered domestic partner, mother, father, child (biological or legally adopted child or stepchild), brother, sister, or legal guardian, the employee may be granted up to five days off with pay. Compensation is prorated for part-time employees according to the number of hours or days normally scheduled to be worked. Annual leave (staff), personal leave (Clerc Center teachers), or leave without pay may be requested for others not covered by this policy.
Employees on paid funeral leave continue to accrue leave in the usual manner.
