Bereavement Leave


Cumberland University realizes that there is no way to put a time limit on the grieving process for a family member. Understanding that an employee may need time off work at these times, the University provides the following:

1. Full-time Faculty and Staff may be absent with pay for up to five days due to the death of a spouse or child. Part-time Staff may be absent without pay for up to five days due to the death of a spouse or child.

2. Full-time Faculty and Staff may be absent with pay for up to three days due to the death of a parent, grandparent, grandchild, brother, sister, mother-in-law, father-in-law, daughter-in-law, or son-in-law. Part-time Staff may be absent without pay for up to three days due to the death of a parent, grandparent, grandchild, brother, sister, mother-in-law, father-in-law, daughter-in-law, or son-in-law.
