Thank god for her doing this. That place is a dumpster fire of shady HR practices. The ad world needs to know.

Good for her. She’ll get something out of it - at least the satisfaction and press. Don’t go quietly.

This shouldn’t surprise anyone as the unwritten rule is once you turn a half century, your days in this game are numbered unless you are upper management/C suite

And sadly, she’ll probably lose because agencies have deeper pockets/better lawyers. 😔😡

My last agency gave me a list of all those who got let go in the same round, showing the ages of each person in order to head off this very lawsuit type. It was meant to show that for every older person let go, there was a young person. That only me feel bad for the unnamed young person who was canned to counterbalance me. iMHO, if Doner didn’t do the same thing, (balancing the ages out,) they stand a good chance of losing something in this suit. I do wonder if she got severance but refused signing anything in order to hold out for a lawsuit.

Please help. I was laid off this past week. I am international and my OPT is coming to an end very soon. I had a call with an immigration lawyer and Deloitte unfortunately does not offers additional support for immigrants aside from said call. I am in need of a job ASAP. I have until July 24th to find a job or I will have to start a new educational program or leave the US. Leaving the US is personally not a viable option.

How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.
