Funeral Director and Embalmer Intern Terminated After Posting Inappropriate Photos on Social Media

A licensed funeral director and embalmer intern took photos of herself in various situations at the funeral home, and photos of decedents’ family members during funeral services while she was acting in her professional capacity, and she posted those photos on social media. She subsequently deleted the content from her social media account, but was terminated from her employment and investigated by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR). We explained that there were no corpses visible in any photos taken of herself; any photos of funeral services were taken with the consent of the family members; and all of the photos were intended for artistic expression. Additionally, we provided the IDFPR with letters of recommendation regarding her professionalism and compassion for grieving families who are coping with the death of loved ones. We convinced the IDFPR to issue an unencumbered funeral director and embalmer license to her.
