It comes down to how hard it would be for you to find another comparable paying job. I think the relevant factors include: your age, your experience level, the practice area and how niche it is, your geographic market, the length of service to the firm, your current salary, and anything else really that you can come up with to say it’ll take you a long time to find a comparable job. Consider if you’d rather stay on during that time or not, and whether the firm is willing to help you land elsewhere.

I don’t work in employment or HR, but I was at a major company during restructuring and they laid off like 40% of the company. So my colleagues and I would discuss these things. Of course it’s a different set of circumstances when you have mass layoffs. And I was in a non legal role at the time.

What's the norm for consulting firms during a shutdown? Do people on non funded projects usually get furloughed or kept on?

Just curious if this is commonplace among smaller firms/what the norm is for bigger ones as well? What's been your experience?
