How to deal with a weeping co-worker

Interviews General Queries

Max. 2000 characters



( 6 months ago )

My co-worker weeps due to their family problems at office.

They don't seek privacy. I don't intervene because I don't think it is my place to ask about their problems when they are not willing to share.

I am uncomfortable around them when they weep and ignoring them completely makes me feel like a jerk. I don't understand how to deal with them.

Is telling the boss a solution?

Edit: My co-worker is a senior to me. A good difference of around 2 decades. Has kids of my age. It is not the same as the other question (which folks are trying to link as duplicate)
