    The employee is a relative of mine and I am appalled at how this has been handled regarding his wife and family. No contact has been made to date not even a MESSAGE OF CONDOLENCE. I am disgusted that HR has not even asked “How can we help, do you need anything”
    I worked in HR and I know that it would have been a comfort to the family.
    United Utilities his former employer have sent flowers and cards and Dutton Contractors held a minute s silence they showed they care it doesn’t take a lot
