A few of Mary’s old team have publicly expressed bitterness and regret about spending all the money and needing to work again.There are spots on other teams where they would be qualified to work. Jon said he doesn’t think that Mary managing some of her old team members will cause conflict, but Mary and I both disagree.If the people she asked had strongly negative impressions of this company, presumably they would have told her when she asked.

She is also worried her old team members will resent her because she chose not to play the lottery because she believed the money would bring nothing but trouble and no good would come from it.
Mary is the one who will have to manage them if they come back, and so Jon should be deferring to your and Mary’s judgment on this.
Our department is expanding, and some of Mary’s former team have applied to work here, citing financial issues and the need for an income.
The departmental manager, Jon, has said he wants all of them to work on Mary’s team. Mary thinks her old team will be bitter about having to come back to work and to have her as manager (at the time they left, she was entry-level and the most junior person on the team).
Do you have any idea how I can approach Jon with these concerns?
Mary is a great employee and will follow Jon’s direction, but I want to support her.
It’s going to take some time for you to recover your equilibrium at work, and that’s okay. Let her know that you’re dealing with a lot right now, that there are a lot of demands on your energy not only because of the grief but also because all the logistics are falling to you, and that you may not be yourself right away.
She probably already assumes that, but you’ll feel better for having said it.
So far I feel like my work performance hasn’t been TOO impacted, but I’m anxious about that happening at some point/how much energy I’m expending keeping myself together.
