Benefits for Active Employees
Funeral Leave - Unclassified Employees
You may request funeral leave for up to six working days upon the death of a "close relative" or "other qualified adult" or that person's close relative. Your relationship to the deceased and necessary travel time will be among the factors your supervisor will consider in determining whether to approve funeral leave, and, if so, the amount of leave to be granted.
A "close relative" is defined as a member of your immediate family, i.e. spouse, parent, grandparent, sister, brother, child or grandchild, including in-laws. Also included are other relatives living in the same household with you.
An "other qualified adult" is defined as an individual with a committed personal relationship with an unclassified employee and who lives in the employee's household.
Requesting Funeral Leave

Funeral Leave Request form
