IDEA: with layoffs and those who have jobs severely overworked, why not hire a someone laid off to split the load then pay them off the books? Good or bad idea...
Company had a restructuring and a co-worker was let go. She had more experience, did more work, and made less money than others in her department who weren’t let go. Her boss (male) made some comments about wanting to be married to her, her appearance etc. all was rebuffed. She was told when let go it was about efficiency but he made the final call on who from the team got cut. I think she should at least consult an employment attorney but she’s worried about losing the severance. How do I help?

Hi ladies of fishbowl. I got laid off today and I am trying to find sense in it - I was my agency’s most effective client partner and highest performer, and still I got cut. Any recommendations on what to do?
