Section 300
Proc. 340
Subject: Funeral and Bereavement Leave
Effective: 07/01/78
Revision (5): 07/01/2015
Funeral leave is documented on the timesheet. Official holidays and days of administrative closing falling within a period of paid funeral leave are charged as holidays and days of administrative closing rather than funeral leave.

The supervisor from whom funeral leave is requested will make a primary determination of eligibility for funeral leave. The Human Resources Director should be consulted by the supervisor in cases where he/she cannot make a clear determination of eligibility.
