Bereavement Pay Policy
We currently have a rather old bereavement policy that was designed to prevent fraud and abuse but doesn't seem to provide for the more serious issues related to death of a spouse, child or dependent parent. I was hoping some of you could send me some sample copies of your policies to help me show my leaders what others are doing to help team members during these difficult times.
Thanks in advance for your help! AArway@snaac.com
Here is our Bereavement Policy:
Employees who have been employed for at least six months are eligible for a paid leave of absence for up to three days for a death in the immediate family to prepare for and/or attend a funeral or burial or to attend to other related personal affairs. "Immediate family members are limited to: parent, step-parent, foster parent, grandparent, legal guardian, father/mother-in-law, sister, brother, spouse, child, domestic partner (see Section 3.30 for definition), parent or child of domestic partner. The employee may be required to provide documentation to support a request for such leave.
