Bereavement

In the event of a death in an employee's immediate family, the manager may allow the employee to take up to three consecutive workdays off with pay, if needed, in order to make arrangements, attend services or for travel. Managers may, at their discretion, allow employees to take time to attend other funerals.

Bereavement leave is not deducted from an employee's PTO balance. To the extent additional time off is needed, employees will be required to use PTO time or unpaid time off.

Members of the immediate family include:

  • spouse
  • parents
  • siblings
  • children
  • grandparents
  • sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, parents-in-law, or
  • any family member residing in your household

 

Jury Duty

Employees who are called to jury duty should notify their manager that they will be out of the office. Employees will not need to use Paid Time Off for jury duty; regular compensation will be provided.

Employees should provide their manager with appropriate documentation.
