Any other firms experiencing layoffs in Toronto? How many weeks on the bench before a warning or layoff?
I'm a first year atty. I make $45K at a small firm of 5. In the last three weeks, my assistant has been fired (caught with pot on break), another paralegal quit, and now another assistant has resigned. I have a caseload of 80, with no help.
Boss says they are looking, they made an offer, but if that person accepts, it will be weeks before they are ready.
I'm falling apart and crying at my desk and can't sleep. Told owner. "Hang in there."
Do I walk now? Or hang in there?
Defendant fired his lawyer and decided to represent himself. At the hearing on his attorney’s motion to withdraw, my colleague referred to Defendant as pro se and Defendant gets mad and says “I don’t agree with what you’re saying, idk what that means!!” Um if you don’t know what pro se means maybe you shouldn’t be a pro se defendant 😳
I was fired as a Jr. producing nothing because they didn’t put me on any projects for six months. I’ve been a freelancer since May and I’ve made tons of stuff. Can I be a mid-level now, please?

With all the sexual harassment stories going around when do you think that creepy sr manager will get fired?
How do you feel about job stability for newly hired folks in firms that went on huge hiring sprees with big offers and more leniency on "target" metrics than typical recruiting? Will there be a point where the huge influx of new consultants exceeds new work brought in and a bunch of companies end up having to do layoffs? Or am I being paranoid?
I haven't made a move yet, but it's something I've been thinking about and it worries me.
Why am I not hearing more about Deloitte layoffs that I know are happening? What is the severance package looking like? Are they doing based on performance? Certain ranks getting hit harder?
Finding sobriety fairly challenging after being laid off. Hanging in there, though! Only bonus - more time for meetings and step work. Anyone else been through it? What was your game plan?
Brig evicted from current living situation since being laid off and not being able to pay rent. What are some options to explore for cheap renting while I look for unemployment? A friend suggested long term AirBnB but unsure how viable an option that is.

Any layoffs, bonus cut, promotion stops planned?
Kind of worried since Deloitte, ACN and Capgemini are laying off people :(
In my previous work experience I had a gap after getting laid off. I held various temp roles. How would include this on resume or LinkedIn?
Does Deloitte give severance? If so what is typical? I’ve heard of 2 - 4 weeks? Or do you just sit on the beach until your fired? (Which is basically severance)
Anyone have their CRT discussions yet?

Anyone here bought a Swiss made watch from Switzerland ( something like a Tag) if yes, is it significantly cheaper? I'm visiting in about 6 months. Wondering if the $$ difference is worth the wait.

I don’t care where and when staffs work as long as they get their work done. My staff did get her work done and puts in extra time to finish things that need to get done. But the manager wants (contd)

First time home buyer, need some second opinions! Looking at a Jersey city waterfront condo, small 1 bed, low HOA close to path. I really like the home and have 20% down pay saved up, preapproval ready, but the sellers aren’t budging much on prices and I feel like I’m not getting compensated enough for the risk I’m taking (buying ahead of potential recession). Thoughts? Inventory is so low I also don’t want to miss this one and not see another one I like for a while.
