Requesting Bereavement Leave Procedure:
To be issued bereavement leave, the employee will submit a bereavement leave request form for up to 3 days of paid bereavement leave. The leave request form must be submitted along with documentation of the family member’s death (documentation can include an obituary, funeral service program, certificate of death, newspaper article, or other similar document). Completed Bereavement leave request forms along with the documentation listed above can be submitted to Benefits@libertyhill.txed.net.
A bereavement leave request can be completed by the employee, or by his or her immediate supervisor on the employee’s behalf.
Bereavement leave is not required to be taken consecutively, but a list of the exact needed days off must be indicated in the Bereavement Leave Request submitted so that accurate leave observance can be processed.
