California requires private employers with five or more employees, and all public employers, to provide up to five days of bereavement leave upon the death of a family member.1

Specifically, employees may take bereavement leave for up to five days upon the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, grandparent, grandchild, domestic partner, or parent-in-law as those terms are defined under the California Family Rights Act.
