Bereavement – What To Say, What To Do, What Not To Say

Just about every company has some sort of bereavement or
funeral leave policy. But beyond the paid time off of a
company’s policy is a person (i.e., an employee) who may
be struggling with the pain of losing a loved one while
trying to regain some sense of normalcy in his/her
personal and worklife.

The problem is that the grieving process is not “normal”
and it often results in lapses of responsibilities and
other issues at work. Additionally, those of us who work
with the grieving person often struggle with how to
interact with the person after his/her loss.

Jonathan A. Segal, Parnter at the law firm of Duane
Morris, published an article recently titled,
“Managing People: What Do You Do When an Employee
Loses a Loved One?”

The article offers 8 recommendations of things to do, not
do, say, not say, etc. when interacting with an employee
who has lost a loved one.

Below is the link that provides access to the article:

New Form I-9 starts September 18, 2017

It’s only been 8 months since we all started using the
“new and improved” version of Form I-9 only to find out
that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
has now made a few more tweaks and we will be required to
use the new version by 9/18/17.

The new form notes the version date in the lower left hand
corner of 07/17/17 N.

Current storage and retention rules have not changed.

The form offers some minor wording changes and renumbers
the list of documents in List C of acceptable documents.
Hopefully, this will be the last revision for some time.

The electronic version and the paper version of the I-9
can be obtained at the website below.
