Merlyn Monroe is not a complainer. If she has a major ache, she usually suffers in silence.Although her employer, Atlantic Mutual Insurance, has an employee assistance program- to provide
emotional and psychological support in the work plan. She certainly never thinks of using it, even if she did have a worry on her mind. “They say its confidential but who really knows? Asked Ms. Monroe’, an administrative assistant at the insurance company. But Merlyn Monroe’s life changed on September 11, 2001. Her office at 140 Broadway in NewYork City, was near the world trade Center. She watched the whole thing from her 50th Floor officewindow.Ms.Monroe had never seen so much destruction in her life. She had never seen such a horrific terrorist attack. Nor had she forced her to relieve 9/11 over and over.Everything she talked to people they wanted details, which made it worse for her. She had so much anger about what had happened to her life and lives of so many people and the city where she worked for 40 Years.Two weeks after 9/11, Ms.Monroe was still suffering after effects. Even though she lives on state Island and Atlantic Mutual’s offices have been temporarily relocated to Madison, New Jersey, not an hour goes by when she doesn’t have flashbacks of her experiences of 9/11.
1. What should Atlantic Mutual Management do, if anything, to cope with the aftereffects of 9/11?
2. How long would You expect employees to be adversely affected by 9/11 if a company provides no formal assistance for dealing with anger and stress?
3. What, if anything, should Management do about employees who appear to be suffering from such kind or trauma and stress, but will neither admit it nor accept help from their employee?
4. Outline the role of HR specialist in providing a safe and healthy environment for employees

In my point of view if GM is down line of MD, then GM will be responsible for all areas in the company.So obviously HR department will also be under GM.HR will report to GM.But this condition is different according to the companies.Because the General Managers will act as Chief Executive Officer(CEO) in many companies so this may vary for companies.
