Hi there! I was recently laid off from a digital health company due to unstable market changes. During my time there I experienced being singled out and prompted for an ongoing background check without cause as well as unprofessional behavior from management (calling my emergency contact as a result of being late). I was offered a 10 week severance package, but I am wondering if I can/should negotiate the amount due to my treatment. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm a first year atty. I make $45K at a small firm of 5. In the last three weeks, my assistant has been fired (caught with pot on break), another paralegal quit, and now another assistant has resigned. I have a caseload of 80, with no help.

Boss says they are looking, they made an offer, but if that person accepts, it will be weeks before they are ready.

I'm falling apart and crying at my desk and can't sleep. Told owner. "Hang in there."

Do I walk now? Or hang in there?

I haven't made a move yet, but it's something I've been thinking about and it worries me.
