Scheduling Bereavement Time Off
- Discuss your Bereavement Time Off plans, in advance, with your manager. If an absence is unexpected, you should notify your manager as soon as possible. While business requirements must be taken into consideration, your manager will work with you to ensure that your workload does not restrict you from taking Bereavement Leave.
- Upon your return, enter your Bereavement Time Off in Workday [VMware network access required].
