Bereavement Leaves

Effective April 15, 2015, both Unit J and certificated members of AALA will benefit from amended language to Article XI, Section 2.0 (certificated) and  Article XIII, Section 8.0 (classified). In the original text, an employee was allowed to use bereavement time due to the death of an immediate family member within ten calendar days of the death. The side-letter amends the wording to allow bereavement absence within twelve months of the date of death. This will be beneficial to those members who may face some extenuating circumstances which do not allow the funeral, burial, etc., to occur within ten days of death
