Employers need to take grief seriously.
Bereavement is always an issue for employers. Grieving can cause time off work, presenteeism (where someone is in work but the mind is elsewhere), poor concentration, behaving out of character, lower productivity, and so on. This may be worse if it is an employee that staff are grieving for.
COVID-19 and the associated restrictions have made bereavement harder for people to cope with.
