Bereavement Leave

If you need to take time off in the event of the death of an immediate family member, Big Sandy ADD provides bereavement leave in the form of sick leave. To request bereavement leave, see your team leader.

The ADD grants up to 3 days of paid bereavement leave (sick leave) to eligible employees in the following employment classifications:

* Regular full-time employees

* Regular part-time employees

The ADD will normally grant bereavement leave unless there are unusual business needs or staffing requirements that prevent accommodating the request. You may also, with team leader approval, use any available paid leave benefits, such as vacation, for additional time off as necessary.

The bereavement leave policy defines "immediate family" as your husband, wife, son, daughter, step-child, parent, step-parent, foster parent, grandparent, grandchild, brother, sister.
