“The notice was improperly sent to John Doe who, as we advised in writing back in March, is no longer with our firm.” because you can replace “John Doe” in the sentence with “he”. If you could replace “John Doe” in the sentence with “him” it would be whom. (I think!)

L1 is correct. If who/whom can be replaced with he, then use who. If with him, use whom.

Who. It is used as a subject, not object pronoun.

He = who, him = whom.

Thank you everyone!!!!!!!

When I struggle with sentences like this, I realize that the answer is to simplify the sentence construction. “The notice was improperly sent to Joe Doe. As we advised in writing back in March, he is no longer with our firm.”

Working for the toxic Deloitte environment was really traumatic for me and many of my colleagues. It took a long time to get over that weekly Sunday depression that kicked in from me dreading having to go back into the office on Mondays. As part of the great resignation class of 2020, I salute those who jumped from that chaotic environment and into industry roles while living their wildest professional dreams. For all those looking to join Deloitte as a potential employer, look elsewhere.
