Death in Family
Most workplaces provide a period of bereavement leave
to employees who have experienced a death in their immediate families.
If such leave is offered, employers should have a clearly written
policy explaining how much leave time will be allowed for a death
in the family and which family members are covered. In addition to
a reasonable period of leave for the employee to make arrangements
and grieve, employers may also offer grief management services via
an employee assistance program (EAP).
New Jersey Summary
New Jersey does not have a law that requires private
employers to provide bereavement leave.
