Can the $1000 well being subsidy at Deloitte be used for an electric standing desk? Looks like that would fit under the ergonomic office furniture section of their infographic but wanted to make sure. Deloitte

Yes. I submitted mine for reimbursement under the well being subsidy earlier this year. Just submitted the 2nd half under the increased allowance.

Potentially dumb query here: joining a new big agency next week. Just received my laptop but nothing else was provided. Happy to wait til my official onboarding to find out what home office supplies they’ll provide or if I should purchase myself (keyboard, mouse, headphones) but would love any insight if someone’s gone through the process??

Had an employee request a standing desk due to back problems. went through the ADA process & the employee obtained a doctor's note to support their request. However, the note was questionable. it was from an acupuncturist, on a word doc, no real signature and just said that a standing desk would prevent pain & improve their productivity, nothing about him not being able to work without it. Thoughts? Also, what do you think about having certifications from non-traditional doctors?

18 weeks pregnant (1st time) and have always been an active/fit person workingout 5x/wk cardio/treadmill and some weight lifting. I've toned down my workout routine since I found out I'm preg as I got 2 v diff advice from the NP I first saw then the OB/GYN herself. NP warned of exercising as this should not be my priority now (which I agree) he warned from any running/or weight lift (were talking 40-70 lbs). Ob was so flexible about it and said I can maintain my routine as long as not exhausted.

Hi all, I’m a senior real estate associate. I just went through the lateral process and secured a special counsel (aka of course) position in big law from a mid sized law firm. Signing bonus of $50k. I saw an email from a recruiter recently saying there are firms paying up to $150k in signing bonuses in real estate. I’m guessing that’s true in the corporate and maybe litigation lateral market, but doesn’t seem right for real estate transactional. Curious if anyone can back that $150k number up.
