Bereavement Leave - Berlitz

Bereavement Leave

Should you require time off due to the death of an immediate family member, your union has negotiated that you can receive a paid leave of absence.

You are entitled to five consecutive days of paid leave.

Additionally, should you wish to attend a funeral of a family member outside your immediate family, such time shall be granted without pay.

Article 27.04: Bereavement

Your collective agreement states:

Should an Employee require time off due to the death of an immediate family member, he or she will be entitled to a paid leave of absence for up to five (5) consecutive days.

Pay will be calculated based on the earnings of the Employee in the preceding four (4) pay periods divided by forty (40).

Immediate family for purposes of Article 27.04 is defined as parents, parent in-law, siblings, spouse, children, guardian, grandchildren, or grandparents of the Employee.

Should an Employee wish to take time off to attend a funeral of a family member other than immediate family, such time will be granted without pay.
