Funeral Leave


Well-Known Member
Need some clarification. For a close relative and a local funeral, do we get 2 paid days both after the day of death and after the funeral each? Or two paid days total? Or something else?

The funeral leave article has to be one of the most confusing parts of the contract. My understanding is that for a local funeral, you are contractually guaranteed just the two days. however, in my experience, a compassionate supervisor can and will code you out with funeral leave for a third or fourth day for a local funeral, they just aren't required to.


Don’t worry he’s friendly

Nothing confusing about it.
2 days off from the day of death to grieve I assume.

2 days off during the work week for the funeral.

No time after funeral unless you call in for a personal matter because you need to grieve the death more. That would be understandable.

No longer than 4 days off.

You are payed 8 hours every day.
10 hours if you work 4-10s.
4 hours for part time.
