It is not fair for it to be the employers decision whether or not you can not only get time off for the death of a family member but whether or not you get paid for it. If employees can get 7 days paid vacation for just vacation then it's only fair that employees also get 3-7 days paid leave for a death in the family. Within the last week my grandmother passed, my fiance's grandmother passed and now my grandfather passed all within a week and my employer not only did not offer any time off but they were very rude and balegerant about us being late for work when we found out my fiance's grandma was on her deathbed. This is something that needs to change!!! Help us make this happen not just for us but for all the people out there that are mourning and deserve time to do that peacefully without worrying about not being able to pay their bills if they take time off work!!! Please and thank you for your support

Make it a law that employers give any employee that can prove a death in their family atleast 3 but up to 7 days paid leave depending on the entire situation

I started this petition because...
Like I explained within the past week my grandmother, my fiance's grandmother and my grandfather all passed away and we were not offered any time for mourning, were told we wouldnt get paid for it if we pushed the issue to get any time off and most importantly we were scalded and told "YOU SHOULD HAVE PLANNED FOR THIS!!!" When we were going through all of this. A manager was rude and balegerant to us because we were late for work when we rushed to the hospital when we found out my fiance's grandmother( the place we went for EVERY holiday) was on her death bed. It is outrageous that it is up to your job whether or not you get time off and then if they do let you have time off to mourn and attend the funeral, you do not get paid for it!!! This has to change because I'm sure there are people that haven't been able to heal properly or say goodbye to people they love because they either aren't given permission by their job or because they cannot afford to miss work without losing everything they have. Thank you for your time and support and I hope you understand!
