Epitome Of A Sad Mother: Boss Tells Grieving Mom To “Stop Her Bloodclot Crying” At Her Daughter’s Death After Co-Workers Complain

What an @$$hole this guy is!!

A New Jersey mom still grieving the death of her beloved teenage daughter says she was ordered by callous bosses to quit discussing the child after co-workers complained — and was even forced to yank the girl’s ballet slippers and photos from her cubicle.

Shattered and stunned, Cecelia Ingraham, 60, of Hillsborough sued for emotional distress — but a state court last month sided with the company.

The case between Ingraham and her former employer, Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceutical in Raritan, where she had worked in the marketing department for 12 years, had been languishing in the courts since 2007.

Although this woman was clearly still distressed over the loss of her daughter, after two years was her boss wrong for asking her to remove her daughter’s belongings from the office?

    They were wrong to tell her to remove the photo unless no other employees can have photos of relatives dead or alive either but they were not wrong to tell her to stop talking about her dead daughter if her coworkers are complaining

    i have a co-wrkr who has been grieving d loss of her mother for 4 yrs, has her pics, obituary & other things decorating her cubicle. She is still crying, loudly sobbing, and one day was flat out WAILING! Although we have always been supportive after her loss, it has been very distracting at times. it changes the work environment when u constantly hear about her loss loved all the time, especially for those of us whom have suffered the same type of loss but conduct ourselves professionally at our jobs YEARS after said death occurred.

    The employer should have offered her time off to go through the grieving process.

    Well I cant say either way because I havent been thru a major loss like that. But I would imagine that it would be a difficult time

    I don’t want to sound inhuman and I now people greive in different ways, but after two years, and she’s still having crying outbursts at work?! This lady was either stretching the sympathy card, or she had some serious issues, and should have gone for counselling.
    There’s a time and a place for one to vent emotions this strong, but the work place isn’t it!

    Let that woman cry!. That’s the problem with society today. Let her grieve!
