Bereavement Leave Policy

In the unfortunate event of a death in the family, a leave of absence with pay may be granted for bereavement. Faculty and staff on full- or part-time annual appointments will receive paid bereavement leave for time off which is required due to the death of a family member, upon approval of the supervisor, as outlined in Procedure D-724.01 Bereavement Leave Procedure.

If any provision(s) of this policy or set of bylaws conflicts with laws applicable to Northwestern Michigan College, including the Community College Act of 1966, the Freedom of Information Act, or the Open Meetings Act, as each may be amended from time to time, such laws shall control and supersede such provision(s).
