Just curious if I might be a little protected from layoffs since I had told HR that my partner is pregnant way before all this. Trying to make it to paternity leave. Does it matter?

How do you recommend dealing with a partner senior to you trying to do anything possible to push you out, force you to quit, or get you fired for years? Owner knows my abilities and likes me (contd)

How do you tow the fine line between sticking up for yourself and not talking back to a partner? For context, our firm has seemingly started making a paper trail for layoffs and I disagree with some of the emails that I have received. I want to respond in a way that covers my own ass. However, I don’t want to piss anyone off, especially if I have read the situation incorrectly.

Fellow 🐠, recently laid off while on H1B. Married my partner who is a US Citizen. As I understand it, I have a 60 day grace period from date of termination to apply for new jobs and begin visa transfer through employer. However, going to begin AoS for marriage based GC. Do I still have to worry about the 60 day grace period? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Can a Senior Manager who otherwise has a good reputation, get fired for bullying? If not, will this person still make it to partner? There seems to be a lack of transparency in firms around this

I was fired after I reported a partner for a serious (criminal) ethics violation. The firm covered it up. Are all companies like this in the end? I’ve lost my trust and don’t know how to start over.

So, thoughts on starting own firm right now. Laid off and doesn't seem to be tons of firms recruiting. I think I can start off for 3k with my partner and try and kill whatever we can get.

Choice between a really nice property, under budget, with a pool (main reason for wanting this place), minor updates needed + landscaping eventually (well manicured lawn), in great school district (no kids so don't care but it makes it well positioned for resale - only lasted a week last time it was on the market 4 yrs ago), vs. new construction townhouse, in similar area, max budget + higher taxes ... On paper it sounds like a no-brainer but I'm torn... Some help here plz 🙏
