Sample Policy: Bereavement Leave

by on
in HR Management,Human Resources

The following sample policy was excerpted from The Book of Company Policies, published by HR Specialist, © 2007. Edit for your organization's purposes.



“Up to four days of paid leave may be taken in the event of the death of a spouse, offspring, sibling, parent, spouse’s parent, grandparent, son- or daughter-in-law or life partner of the employee. Exceptions may be granted by the owner under extenuating circumstances when requested by the employee.”



POLICY CONSIDERATONS: Your company must recognize the need for an employee to take time off in the event of a death in the family. In your policy statement you should specify the number of days of leave granted, whether the time off will be paid, and any restrictions you want to place on the definition of “family.”
