When an Employee Dies
The death of an employee needs to be communicated within the workplace promptly and with sensitivity to the emotional toll that such news has on those receiving it. Many questions arise for managers and employees about how to make these announcements and how to encourage ongoing healthy communication among employees.
But beyond the communication challenges you face, there are nuts-and-bolts issues – payroll, tax, benefits – that you're also responsible for. Each requires tact, precision, and a touch of compassion for family members and co-workers.
Join us Tuesday, January 12, for When an Employee Dies. For the first time EVER, we've teamed up a psychologist and bereavement expert with a payroll and HR specialist to help you manage both the emotional and practical aspects involved with the death of an employee. You'll discover:
- Key words and phrases to use when announcing the death of an employee
- Key words and phrases you must NEVER use
- How to identify an employee who is struggling and in need of counseling services
- The 5 legal steps you must take when an employee dies
- The 4 essential payroll questions you must answer before you cut that final check
- Bereavement leave – policies and rights
- Pension distributions
- Tax withholding
- Reporting to the Social Security Administration
- Filing with the IRS
- And more
From the role of social media to making sure your bereavement policy can pass EEOC muster … the amount of detail you provide to how to offer counseling … When an Employee Dies will help you respond promptly – and properly.
We typically spend more time with our work "family” than we do at home. On January 12, join Dr. Paul Martin and attorney Alice Gilman for the expertise you need to help you deal with every aspect of this difficult – but necessary – topic.
