Regular employees scheduled to work at least 20 hours each week are entitled to up to three days off without loss of pay in the event of death in the immediate family. Immediate family is defined as parent, parent-in-law, brother, sister, spouse, child, grandparent, domestic partner, grandchild, or person in an equivalent relationship. Exceptions to this policy require approval by the Director of University Placement and Staff Relations, or the Director of Library Personnel Services. Days missed due to a death in the family will be recorded on the employee's attendance record. If additional time is necessary, personal business days may be used. Departments may also allow the employee to use vacation days or may approve a personal leave.
