Death in Family
National Summary
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.
