I work for a sole practitioner on a contract (hourly) basis. He is filing a lawsuit to recoup unpaid legal fees from prior clients; which includes fees he paid me for my work but the client failed to pay him. We have a few other cases, but things are pretty slow at the moment. He has been asking me to do a lot of work for free to help him with the litigation to recoup legal fees. I feel as though my time is much more valuable and I should not be spending all this time doing free work. Advice?

Traveling next week for a client after a long time. Booked a Delta Main Cabin ticket through concur. Now I am trying to upgrade to 1st using my points but the delta app shows all premium seats as unavailable. Usually it did let me change it in the past but not this time.

TFW when your SM announces to the team that your manager is leaving the project while the manager is out on PTO. -_-
Hey 🐠, looking for some advice - what’s the best way to approach a conversation with a more junior team member about being out of office frequently? Since they were hired back in May they’ve taken off 1-2 days per week for various reasons (plus 1.5 weeks for vacation)… I understand that things come up, people get sick, etc. but it’s impacting delivery / I never know when they will ping in the morning and say that they won’t be in so I have to have someone else, or me, pick up the slack…
What kind of Comp , ESOP structure should I expect (or negotiate for) for Sr. principal @ West Monroe , Chicago
it’s wild how much casual racism there is in the HBS threads. maybe the reason you didn’t get in despite your top stats is that your essay pointed to the same type of low EQ that goes with complaining about how unfair it is.
As an Indian visa worker in US, I feel Indian managers in ZS are very rude to me , one makes me work longer hours than white team members , never lets me present in workshops , and always criticizes. Last week I made a mistake in a internal report and he said that if I did that again he will book my flight to India. I have never faced this challenge with white managers. Is this a ZS thing or across all firms, I wish to leave because this treatment makes me feel like a lesser person

What is your PTO policy at your firm?
Spinoff question... I know FMLA technically only covers you if you've worked for 12 months at your employer but has anyone actually had their employer say "sorry you we only here for 10 months so you can take your two weeks of accrued vacation, after that we'll expect you back." ? Since FMLA is unpaid anyway, I would imagine most employers would at least let you have unpaid time off.
