    My FT sup was really cool (he is a great guy) texted me about my mother-in laws obit because the guys I work with wanted to know (not really). Upper management was probably breaking his chops about verification.

    A supervisor texting you about a family obituary for "proof" is not a "great guy".

    i banged the day she passed and came in the next day and i wasn't ready. had a few emotional moments with guys giving condolences and my boss sent me home. ended up getting guaranteed 8 instead of pay actual which was very cool of him to do i thought. otherwise here its pretty much always been 4 days regardless of travel or weekend for a human death.

    So my mother just died. Got a call on Tues from hospice that she could go anytime. I came off road that day and waited with her until Saturday when she finally passed. Hospice jumped the gun a little but there was no way of knowing.

    Her wishes were no visitation or services. I have nothing to attend at this point. My question: Is there any chance I'm going to get bereavement pay for the 3 days I waited with her? It seems unlikely based on the wording of the contract. Not sure how much leeway they have with that.

    Ask your center manager (not a sup). Some of them actually have a heart when it comes to a death in an employees family. Just my opinion but I would say you probably won't get paid but it never hurts to ask. Sorry for your loss.

    Sorry for your loss.

    The reason you will probably not get paid is because they would have to make a adjustment through payroll. They hate doing that and I've heard they get dinged for it. Still it doesn't hurt to ask.

    So I'm a pre 1982 member.
    Do I receive 4 days for all relatives mentioned, or just the "close" group?

    Is the 4 days contingent on travel for a pre-1982 member?

    Thanks Bug.
    Not too many of us pre-1982 guys left!

    Just the immediate family members, initially mentioned.

    It's just a straight 4 days. (paid)

    Any other time off, would be at the discretion of the company. (un-paid)
