I recently had a death in my family, my grandfather whom I was close to passed away suddenly. As I currently live on the other side of the country and it is a long weekend, I was planning on not taking any bereavement leave (assuming I can take the weekend to deal with it, and I'll likely not be attending the memorial service).
Should I still inform my employer of the loss, as it has a possibility of affecting my work or attitude? Or should I not bother providing any information since it is not work related (e.g. its just a personal problem and is not a concern for my employer since I will not be taking leave)?
