An employee committed suicide at our corporate office yesterday by jumping from the fourth floor of the atrium. It was a circulating rumor yesterday, but some news channels/websites have picked it up and management hasn't addresses it at all.

Don't you think management should at least say something?

Yes they should. It's like ignoring will make it go away?

Oh, my.  That is terrible.  So sorry to hear.  And it would be nice if mgmt would @ least send condolences to the family or something.  And provide a way for coworkers to get through it, if that makes sense.   Are they staying mum in case of a possible lawsuit or something?

That's horrible. The company definitely needs to acknowledge it.
At my company someone committed suicide (not at work) and at our next staff meeting they reminded us of services that are available to us.

Wow. That's just sad. I hope they say something soon because the longer they wait, the worse it makes them look.

Yes! But I'm not surprised at my work a woman's contract was not renewed and she sent text threats to the bosses and some workers. It was never addressed.

They should address it for the simple fact it happened at the job and they should make it known that there are ways of getting help. I know if I were a company owner I would want to have on my mind. That my company be the reason life was lost
