Last week my intern informed me that his grandmother was ill and likely to pass. I gave him my condolences, told him to take as much time as he needed, and asked him to let me know when he would be back.
It has been a week and I have not heard from him. I am concerned about him but also want to know when he will return. The time off is unpaid since he does not have benefits as an intern, but this is turning into a sizable amount of his overall internship.
What is an appropriate way to reach out? Or should I wait until he contacts me? I have his personal email and phone number, as he is unlikely to check his work email.
