I know this thread has no legs, but a very close
Uncle of mine died, and my boss said I could not have
off to attend his funeral. My choice, take sick day
(which they say can only be taken if I am really sick;
if I am not sick, I can be disciplined or fired) or take
a vacation day. I don't care. I am attending the funeral
and will take a vacation day. Once, an uncle, aunt, father
mother-in-law were considered family, and we were given a
day for the funeral. This no longer extends to them.
But what are your policies?
I know some can make a death a month for a day off, but
come on, a true death. What are your policies?
