A pier of mine came to me to me looking for some advice on how to handle a issue with one of his directs. The directs job required them to travel and interact with clients. The direct over the last few months has lost a lot of weight. The person was aways skinny, but it is clear some thing must be wrong. HR has advised him not to talk to the employee due to recent law suits in the area over similar classes. The manager is more concerned with the health of the team member then any thing else.
Is it ever appropriate to give feed back on or question a eating disorder on a direct? If not, does any one have any idea on how you could handle this?
