Laws of Shiva and Working

Question:

I’m a commissions analyst for a telecom company. I calculate the monthly commissions for the Inside and Direct sales teams, managers and Directors. Approx. 25 employees. The calculations are due for the last pay period of each month. Due to insufficient resources, I do not have a backup. Can I put in some work hours during the 7 day shiva period to complete the payment calculation so the employees can be paid? If I’m unable to, all the commission based employees will not receive their expected pay. Missing the deadline will place my position in jeopardy for future employment as the company was recently acquired by a US buyer.

Answer:

You can do the work at home after the first 3 days of shiva, since by missing the deadline will place your position in jeopardy. המקום ינחם אותך בתוך שאר אבילי ציון וירושלים.
