Bereavement Days: Goodwin College allows up to five (5) days, as needed, of paid leave upon the passing of an immediate family member such as a spouse, parent, or child. Up to two (2) days of paid leave are allowed for the passing of other close family members such as a sibling, grandparent, mother-in law or father-in-law. Other needs for paid leave due to bereavement can be met with the use of personal time, with supervisor approval. Please notify your supervisor immediately after learning that you need this leave. If you determine that additional time off is needed due to extenuating circumstances (e.g. travel), personal time off may be taken with management approval.
