Proof Of Funeral For Work

Most employers will not require employees to provide proof, such as a death certificate, before approving time off of work for a funeral. The name of the deceased and relationship, along with date and location is usually enough information about a funeral for an employer. If you are unsure about how your company handles this, check with your boss, human resources or ask to see the company's bereavement policy.
