The Mary Mac Show | Dealing With Work When A Loved One Dies

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 71, we discuss how to alert your employer and colleagues of the death of a loved one and what to expect when you return to work.

Before we’ve had a significant loss, we usually don’t give it too much thought as to how we would handle such a tragedy with the people at work.

We go about our business and do our job as well as we can.

But when we experience someone’s death who is very dear to us, the situation at work can be somewhat strained and the way we deal with our boss and colleagues may become different than before.

In this episode, I delve deeply into this sensitive area of life.

Notification to your boss can be stressful so I speak frankly about how to handle this and how you may be treated when you return to work after the funeral and burial.

If this is the first time you’ve experienced the death of a loved one, you will want to listen in for tips on how to deal with your boss during this time.
