  • funeral pay Ohio

    Is there any law stating an employer must give funeral pay? My father passed away this year and I am his only child. I needed a few days to prepare for the funeral not to mention my emotional stability was a little tattered. Anyhow, my employer let me take the time I needed , but did not pay me for any of the time I took. Is this illegal or just morally wrong?

    No, there is no law that requires employers to provide any funeral leave, paid or unpaid. Does your employer not offer PTO that you could use?
    I am not able to respond to private messages. Thanks!
