They don't have any specific rule against hring someone who has been laid off. But that doesn't mean getting in, especially now, will be much easier than if the applicant was still employed.

Since this is my first office job out of college, I have only been in the position for 6 month. I already having an issue with my pay to work ratio, is it too soon to ask for a pay raise to match my workload? So the story is I end up having to do someone else’s job since they are lazy and slacking, however the company doesn’t want to fired him. I feel like I’m pushing too much and they would say no to me or worst. What should I do in this case where I’m overwork and underpaid?

Hi All! I need some help. I got recently laid off and I am going to start interviewing for roles soon. Should I tell recruiter that I’m not in the company anymore? If so, what should I say? (I got fired due to my performance, but my manager set me up for failure from the beginning, aka toxic leader).
Also, should I update my LinkedIn so that recruiters know I’m open for work?

Had a variety of R&D related internship experience, but wanted to shift towards consulting and strategy based work after college. Ended up receiving an offer from GH in their life sciences practice. Has been an okay experience so far, but based on what I've seen here on FB, I'm getting concerned about my chances of pivoting to a more legitimate firm i.e. MBB, Big 4, etc. in the future. Thoughts?

Initially she claimed unemployment but they moved to tele-therapy so she’s been earning an hourly rate. However she’s struggling as they are consistently not been paying her the correct amount and with no explanation. She had an employment contract to end of Aug with a 3 month notice period that they did not give to her. Could she possibly force them to pay out her contract?
