Handle the Death of an Employee

Key Points

  • When an employee dies, whether onsite or offsite, it can cause emotional strain on the other employee as well as the family and friends of the dead.
  • Handling the situation appropriately can go a long way towards creating acceptance and boosting employee morale.
  • If the death was onsite, the employer should make sure that nothing it did lead to the death and if it did, it should create policies to avoid a similar situation from happening in the future.
