Funeral leave-know your rights

Recently a pal of mine has found himself stuck in an argument with Trimet managers over the death of a family member and what that means for him as a  Trimet worker.

Yes you get 3 days paid funeral benefits but you are also eligible for paid leave, up to two weeks!

 Trimet is trying to tell him that he is eligible for two weeks of leave under OFLA but that has to be taken in consecutive days.

 An examination of the laws provides no hint that the leave must be consecutive but must be taken  within a 60 day period .

Know your rights, Trimet managers do not know the law!
