I was informed today that my employment would be terminated at a tier-2 consulting firm in Toronto. The reasons for my dismissal are unclear and I would like to get legal advice on the termination agreement and severance package that was offered. Has anyone experienced a similar situation and can refer a good employment lawyer?
Left my consulting job after 2.25 years in October 2019 for a venture backed startup. Laid off in March 2020. Joined a VC fund as an intern shorty after, but our fundraise (for our fund) got pushed back.
I was approached about helping grow a small executive recruitment firm focused on private technology companies. I’ll be chief of staff. The company takes $150k/placement + equity. The co expects to hit $1m in rev this year. They also invest in startups.
Should I do it? Is this pigeonholing?
How is severance pay calculated? Does it also include gsu’s that are vesting that year or anything else?
An agency I used to work at had another round of layoffs today bringing the total number of people who have lost their job to nearly 40. They then went on to post across social media today about the One Show awards they won. The lack of humanity in this industry is disgusting.
Did havas just have layoffs?
Coworker got fired because they stole my clients! We have a policy stating that the realtor who initiated the contact should be the one closing the deal to give them a fair chance. I feel bad but they should have read the policy...
People with multiple kids are probably the ones who are really looking to FIRE but, paradoxically, aren't quite able to due to the pressure of meeting current demands (mostly money, but also time) and not saving/investing quickly enough.
A truly Catch 22 situation.
Wanted to see if there is anyone here who has FIREd, or close to, with multiple kids. Know anyone who has done it from such a situation?
I recently started working remotely for an IT consulting firm based in LA and NYC (400 EE). I joined at 65K with 3.5years experience and 5k bonus. I currently live in MN.
When I first joined, we had a head of HR with a comp of 170K and HR manager 100K. We are all remote. Now the company fired the head of HR and asked my manger and I to revise our comp and submit to accounting.
What is the right salary to ask for? since I have a lot of things to take care of now.
Any details on GSD&M layoff today?
Just got laid off from PwC after nearly four years. This was my first job out of school and I'm actually not upset. PwC has treated me EXCEPTIONALLY well, and I see a lot of upside from here.
My background is in data analytics, process/performance improvement primarily within tax, accounting and business use case development, but I really want to find a new opportunity within analytical finance, transformation or bus dev/strat.
If you know of an opportunity, I'd love the chance to network!

Oh Monday morning, the time when I wonder if getting fired really is that bad of a fate.
New here from 🇨🇦, and have an odd question about the health system here. I went to a Dr. for a fully covered standard appointment and swore I uploaded my insurance to their portal. I was laid off from my tech company a week later and lost benefits two weeks post that. THEN I get the full bill from the Dr. and they never billed my insurance or called for it if it was missing. Is this normal? The US system is crazy when it comes to billing! Never comes on time or correctly
Mass layoffs in USDC?? They hired me for the Arizona USDC and to start in a couple of weeks. Please

My wife was informed a few weeks ago that she would be laid off as of end of year. She signed the paperwork and will be receiving a decent severance due to her tenure there.
Now the company is saying they may have some other work for her to do for a few months and they could extend her contract if interested. If she says no, is she still eligible for her severance since she already signed her paperwork?
Any consulting firms hiring at the analyst level right now? Profile is a business technology analyst, semi target school, < 1 year of experience. Experience primarily with technology transformations, excited about the work and want to stay in the tech consulting space. Unfortunately impacted by COVID related layoffs.....
Was aiming to become a partner. However the layoffs are making me rethink. Would I regret sacrificing my personal life when promotions are no longer based on performance. Thoughts?
Laid off by my group and was given time to find a new gig. I found a new one and will be departing the firm in two weeks. The senior partner who hired me and for whom I’ve done majority of my work for is not speaking with me, ignoring my emails and requests for a call to inform him about next steps. My guess is they’re disappointed with me and feel like I’ve embarrassed them. How do I salvage this relationship? I’ve beaten myself up enough for my performance issues that led to this.

Would you rather work in OD/OE or HR M&A? Currently within OE and have been presented an offer to swap to HR M&A (which i have a background in as well). Thinking about future growth, job stability, and compensation. I have a feeling HR M&A is a much smaller pinhole than OE, but not sure if I’m overthinking

I became a people manager in the middle of a major implementation last year and we didn’t have a conversation around compensation changes - which I recognize was a huge mistake on my side for not ensuring we did. I don’t know if I can appropriately have the conversation now. I’m also considering leaving for a new position, but unsure if I could even make more money elsewhere. I’m currently a Senior HRIS Analyst making $99k base + 10% bonus potential. Just looking for some advice.
