University of Washington Librarians are granted up to 3 days of paid bereavement leave for the death of a family member. For bereavement eligibility, University Libraries uses the same family member definition as for professional staff.

This leave must be used in full day increments.

In addition, sick leave may be used for bereavement or condolence for a family member or friend not defined by your employment program, or if you need to extend your leave due to other related circumstances.
