If I supervise an employee who dies because of the flu, what should I do with the employee’s records and personal effects or to help the employee’s family?
Contact your agency's human resources office if you need guidance on the procedures for the distribution of personal effects, records, and resolution of family matters. Also, direct the deceased employee's family to the Internet guide entitled, What You and Your Family Need To Know About Your Federal Benefits During an Emergency
. The guide discusses the procedures involved in obtaining benefits for the family after an employee dies. See Section IV-F of the Human Resources Planning Guide.
