I got laid off today. My client is an automotive account and they slashed more than 50% of their budget due to the state of the world. For those who have been laid off due to this pandemic....

Do you need to have COVID in your termination letter? I’m wondering about my eligibility for the Federal Pandemic Unemployment program (the additional $600 a week). Does something need to indicated the pandemic to qualify? Trying to get everything straight.

Hi OP, I don’t think so. I could be wrong so please others chime in, but I was just laid off as well and my research found that the extra $600 will be deposited once you apply for your normal state unemployment.

Thoughts on returning to a prior firm? Bad idea? Or ok under the right circumstances? My main reasons for leaving were better salary and to live closer to family. I work quite a bit more now so I don’t see my family that often, and am always working when I do go visit. Also, interestingly, I received a significant raise at my last firm about a week before I gave notice. So they *were* willing to pay me more; it just happened too late.

So I understand age discrimination in the general sense and I believe in it. However, I think something that isn’t talked about is age/gender discrimination against women in the reproductive age range. I feel like people could be looking at me and thinking: if we hire her, she might get pregnant soon. It’s so unfair and this is why we have a wage gap (or one of the reasons)! Thoughts? Any ways to get around this?

How much do exit opportunities actually correlate to the law firm you’re working at? I often hear people advising to shoot for the V10s for the best exits, but do those firms actually give better chances than a V30? Are V10 clients only hiring directly from V10s? Trying to figure out whether choosing a V30 that I really liked over a V10 (that will probably make me hate my life) would actually be detrimental to future opportunities.
