I'm reading a FB feed right now that someone made an offer "contingent on references & background check" ...is this actually a thing? I've always done background checks before an offer so that I avoid a potential disaster of telling someone I'm rescinding their offer because their references are terrible. Is that accurately a thing? "Written Offer contingent on reference checks"

Love being on a case with a bunch of parties that inevitably end up filing contentious and borderline frivolous discovery motions back and forth, squabbling over scheduling, and threatening sanctions. Meanwhile I sit back and evaluate our legal position and either develop evidence for trial/dispositive motions or get a fair resolution and dip. Very much enjoy the show though

As a junior lawyer, what’s a good way to ask seniors that review your work for more feedback on a particular piece of work? Sometimes I feel like they review writing and provide little to no comments because it’s not substantively wrong but, based on feedback I get from others, I know there’s areas for improvement (and people always have personal preferences, which are helpful to know, too). I know it takes someone much longer to give this feedback so any thoughts/suggestions welcomed!

New/pivoting into HR! 👋 Currently working as a TA Coord with a little entry level work in HR Ops prior to this.

I didn’t go to school for HR and therefore haven’t had the opportunity to sample HR Ops. vs. TA vs. Comp vs. Benefits vs. Payroll, etc. I know work experience is the best barometer, but what can supplement this?

I just received my merit review which I excelled at and they gave me a 7% increase instead of 3 to bump me up to “market rate”, since I’m in tech in nyc. But even at 7% I’m still underpaid and I know because I’ve interviewed with other companies in nyc for my role and they’re offering 75-80k while I’m now getting 64. Also read comments on here. I want to speak with my manager about bumping me up more at least to 70, but Idk if that’s a good idea and not sure how to have that convo. Any advice?
