Bereavement Leave

The purpose of Bereavement Leave is to provide all full-time benefits-eligible employees up to three days of leave with pay for each death in their immediate family.

“Immediate family” for this policy is defined as: the employee’s spouse, mother, father, sister, brother, children, grandparents, grandchildren, mother-in-law, father-in-law, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, or other person who occupies the same role in the family of the employee.  An employee's step and foster relationships with the above are included in the definition of “immediate family.”  [DEC(Local)]

An additional two days of extended bereavement leave is available to an employee upon the death of an employee’s spouse, child or parent or other person who occupies the same role in the family of the employee.

Questions regarding eligibility shall be directed to the Human Resources Office.  If you need more information or have questions, contact Collin College HR at the Collin Higher Education Center in McKinney: Christina Canales at 972-599-3164 or Mae Francis at 972-548-6659.
