Bereavement Leave


The purpose of Bereavement Time is to provide all full-time benefits-eligible employees up to three days of time 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.

  • Employees will submit their absence request for time off in Workday.

Questions regarding eligibility shall be directed to the Human Resources Office.  If you need more information or have questions, contact Collin College HR Benefits at 972-599-3152.
