Best ways to deliver bad news to employees



Delivering bad news is never easy. It is all the more difficult when you don’t agree with the message you are dealt to communicate. For example, to tell a star employee that he has been denied a promotion due to some HR policy. Such situations call for great strength, as most often than not, managers are expected to toe the line and begrudgingly agree to break the news to the deserving employee. And hope that the messenger is not at the receiving end of the ire.

Such situations call for tactfulness, as the manager’s profile entails many such occasions where you’re forced to be the bearer of bad tidings. Here are some of the best ways to deliver bad news to employees.

High Court directs deceased government employee’s arrears to be paid from IAS officer’s pension



A single-judge bench of the Rajasthan High Court today directed the state government to recover damages for the illegal termination of a Rajasthan State Handloom Development Corporation (RHDC) employee, since deceased, from the pension of retired IAS officer Umrao Salodia and another person. According to the petitioner, the matter pertained to the “illegal” retrenchment of Shashi Mohan Mathur, who had joined the RHDC in 1991 and remained on probation till 1996. However, owing to “false” charges of embezzlement, he was retrenched and IAS Umrao Salodia, who was then in charge of the RHDC, dismissed his appeal without granting him a hearing, the petition alleged. Mathur had approached high court in 2002. He passed away subsequently and his wife continued to fight the legal battle.

A bench of Justice Sanjeev Prakash Sharma directed that Mathur be treated as being employed and his arrears recovered from the pension and other post-retirement benefits of Salodia, who was in the news for converting to Islam after he was not appointed the chief secretary by Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. The bench directed that the recoveries be made within four months.
