Funeral Leave


Full-time faculty and administrative employees.


It is the policy of Albion College to grant employees paid funeral leave for up to five days in order to make arrangements and attend the funeral of a member of the employee's immediate family. Immediate family includes an employee's spouse, child, stepchild, grandchild, mother, father, mother-in-law, father-in-law, brother, sister, grandparent, daughter-in-law, and son-in-law.

Employees are eligible for up to three days paid funeral leave in order to make arrangements and attend the funeral for relatives other than the immediate family.


Upon the death of a member of an employee's family, the employee must notify and request from the employee's supervisor the length of time the employee needs to be absent from work.
