Does Walmart give time off for family death?

If a family member or a close relative dies, Walmart permits staff to have up to three days of bereavement absence. Individuals who use bereavement leave are normally compensated for their time away from work. In some cases, they can obtain a Personal Leave of Absence for lengthier lengths of time.

What is considered immediate family for bereavement?

Immediate family is defined by our Bereavement Policy as “the employee’s spouse, domestic partner, legal guardian, son, daughter, mother, father, sister, brother, grandparents, aunt, uncle, niece and nephew, and in-laws of the same categories.”
