Private employers. Missouri law does not require employers to provide bereavement leave for employees working in the private sector.
State employers. State employers may grant employees up to 5 consecutive working days for bereavement leave on the death of a member of the employee's family, including spouse, child, sibling, parent, stepparent, grandparent, grandchild, or household member. The employee is also entitled to this leave for the death of a spouse's child, parent, stepparent, grandparent, or grandchild (1 MO CSR 20-5.020).
