Sick Leave for Bereavement (SD)

Definition

  • Sick leave for Bereavement applies if an employee is so incapacitated due to the death of an immediate family member that he/she cannot return to work. 
  • This type of leave is mutually exclusive from paid funeral leave. 
  • For the definition of immediate family member and significantly close relative, see appropriate collective bargaining agreement.
  • Sick leave for bereavement comes out of sick leave balance.  It is not the same as paid funeral leave.
