    Default BEREAVEMENT PAY Florida

    What is the requirement by law for an employer to pay at time of bereavement? (How many days, if any)

    I don't believe there is any such requirement. Many employers do offer this benefit however.

    For instance at work, my benefit plan allows 3 days for family and 5 days for spouse or child. I have seen some people use FMLA as well (non-paid) because they needed to work out care arrangements for their other family members when they lost a primary caregiver.

    There is no such requirement.

    Nor is there a requirement for companies to provide holidays, vacation or sick leave.

    Some companies do, some don't. Employees, given an offer between one that does and one that does not, get to make a choice.

    And Scott's answer is true in all 50 states.

    With a few state-specific exceptions for voting and jury duty, there are no circumstances in which an employer is required to pay a non-exempt employee when they do not work, and an exempt employee does not have to be paid when he/she takes full days off for personal reasons.
