Yes, my employer does provide barevement leave pay for parents, grand parents ect.. I am a step granddaughter however his obituary says I'm his granddaughter. The obituary is needed to prove immediate family.. i.e. granddaughter, parent ect. Which I provided.
However because someone told management at my place if employment that I was not related. So, even though I provided an obituary stating I'm his granddaughter, they refuse to pay me for the bereavement leave. Is there any merit to this? They can just decide to not pay me although I provided the necessary documents asked for..?
Because another person said I wasn't related or even if they knew I was only a step granddaughter, doesn't the obituary, that was asked for per my handbook, over ride what they know or heard?
Also, I am UAW if that makes a difference. My union is fighting this but I would like to know if I have the right to the paid leave ...
