Any insight into Jackson Walker?
Jackson Walker LLP
I’m the only associate in my dept (niche transactional practice group, 4th yr). It’s so hard for me to gauge my progress when my only points of comparison are equity partners. I’ve been feeling like such a failure recently. I feel like I should be getting fewer comments on the documents I draft. I feel like I should have fewer questions. I feel like I’m always making mistakes...but I have no way to tell if I’m behind or not. Any recommendations (other than asking my partners, obviously)?
Question: I have a lawsuit against a center that filed for BK. I believe there is insurance from the time in question. However, I know BK stays the litigation and then disposes claims. Do I have any recourse? Can I still reach the insurance? Thanks you.
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
My labor & employment law firm has misclassified about 15-20 of it's associates. We weren't being paid 2x minimum wage in order to be classified as exempt employees. This came to light and then they gave almost no direction or answers for about 3 weeks and just responded that they will give all the affected attorneys back pay only. We are entitled to meal/rest break claims, OT, wage statement violations, waiting time penalties, etc. What should we do?!

I am a first year associate in Biglaw. I have been put on an improvement plan to increase my billable hours. My supervisors have commented that have not been getting work because I need to improve my efficiency. I am willing to do what it takes to improve but wonder how to improve my hours when no one seems willing to give me a second chance.

Hi Everyone! Thought I’d share that my firm is hiring for audit seniors that have 2-3 busy seasons under their belt and looking for a jump to a smaller firm (35 people). We focus on benefit plan audits (only) and is a pretty unique firm. I left B4 after 2 years and came here 5 years ago and have been pretty happy with the switch. Definitely better work life balance and some unique benefits. It’s also still public accounting and auditing if you like the work. Happy to connect and talk more!

Moms, is there anyone here who took a 'shorter' mat leave after their first kid was born? I'm in Canada, and most of my peers took the entire year off. I think I'll want 6 montnmhs at most, while husband takes the other 6. If there are no health complications for me, he's onboard with the plan too. What I'm looking for is advice around what kind of efforts does a 6 mo baby need? Can it be done while I'm working from home, and husband is the primary caregiver?
