Five days pass before remote contingent worker’s death is discovered (Los Angeles Times)


When a contingent worker on a remote assignment unexpectedly passed away, five days went by before it was discovered that he had died, the Los Angeles Times reported. Dominic Green had been working through a staffing firm for the Los Angeles Department of Public Health tracking Covid cases. Green missed clocking in online on Thursday for his remote role, and supervisors at the client site reached out. However, it wasn’t until the following Monday his family discovered the 28-year-old professional had unexpectedly died days earlier. Co-workers knew Green only through his work output, and one supervisor said she couldn’t pick him out in a photo.
