Funeral or Death Leave

Up to six days of leave is paid upon the death of a close relative pending approval of the supervisor. The employee's relationship to the deceased and necessary travel time shall be among the factors considered in determining whether to grant funeral or death leave, and if so, the amount of leave to be granted.

A relative is defined as a person related to the employee by blood, marriage or adoption and minors residing in the employee's residence as a result of court proceedings pursuant to the Kansas code for care of children or the Kansas juvenile offenders code.
