Boston-based Liberty Mutual Insurance is offering an online guide to assist with one of the most difficult of workplace crises – the death of an employee. From handling benefits to counseling coworkers, the list of actions required when a worker passes away may be rarely used, but it is long. Involving particular delicacy are the even rarer on-site deaths.

The role of the employer as a source of life insurance coverage has never been greater and is still rising, Liberty Mutual notes. The online guide, available here (Look for Life Insurance Awareness Month, Moving Forward: Addressing the Death of an Employee—A Resource), aims in part to help with the final step in that benefit’s administration.
