Grief At Work

NPR's David Molpus reports that every year millions of Americans lose a loved one. These personal losses frequently spill over into the workplace, where employers, colleagues and those in mourning struggle over what to do. While much has been learned about the psychology of grief, corporate policies on bereavement have remained largely static. In this report, David Molpus finds that some employers are starting to give grief more attention.
