Bereavement Leave

Erlanger Health System offers Bereavement Leave to provide a means for employees to have time away from work due to a death of an immediate family member or an immediate family member of the employee's spouse.

All regular full-time and regular part-time employees are eligible for Bereavement Leave

Paid bereavement leave of up to three consecutive scheduled work days (based on 7.5 hours each), can be taken within 14 calendar days of the death of a member of the immediate family of the employee or employee's spouse. (Authorized time for part-time employees will be a prorated amount based on the employee's regularly scheduled hours.)

Employee's immediate family is defined as spouse, father, mother, child, brother or sister, grandparent, or grandchild-any of whom may be either natural, foster, step-, or adopted.

Spouse's immediate family is defined a father, mother, child, brother or sister-any of whom may be either natural, foster, step- or adopted.
