I work at a law firm that requires 2100 in order to be eligible for a bonus. Despite my best efforts (proactively asking for work) I will miss the target by 50 hours. If my firm refuses to give me a prorated bonus, should I take that as a sign and leave?

Yes. If the workflow (including your proactiveness) does not get you over the line, the firm isn’t helping you to help them, which helps yourself.. Especially if this is your first firm, leave.

Yes. If you know you are going to miss, be proactive and have a conversation with professional development and any partner you work with that has clout. Go earn that money.

As I'm moving to a new role in a small company, I have a doubt about my salary structure like the Basic salary part is only 20,000 while my take home is 62k after all deductions.

I'm concerned because the leave encashment & other things totally depends on the basic salary.

Are there not any rules for the Basic salary to be at a certain % of CTC or it depends totally on the company?

Also PF deductions they are offering only 1800 p.m but considering 20000 basic it should be 12% of 20000 right?

I work in a midsize firm and we have the basic subscription to westlaw, which doesn’t include the ability to see filed briefs, motions, etc without incurring additional costs. I’m wondering if there is a service in the NJ/PA area that gives you access to previously filed motions and briefs? So if I’m drafting a summary judgment I could search the service and find a similar one. If this doesn’t exist.. I think I found the next million dollar idea lol
