316 Salary Continuation At Death
If a regular employee scheduled to work 20 or more hours each week dies while an active employee, his or her salary will be paid up to and including the date of death, plus any unused vacation entitlement. In addition, the employee's estate will be paid 1) an amount equivalent to one month's salary, including any holidays or recess days that may fall within the 30-calendar-day period immediately following the death, and 2) an amount equivalent to the value of any accumulated but unused sick days.
The supervisor of the deceased employee must promptly notify the Benefits Section of the Department of Human Resources of an employee's death so that beneficiary entitlements may be processed. All insurance claims are processed through the Benefits Office, not through the insurance carrier.
