I believe if they ask if you have a current offer it's because the people they are looking to hire, they need to be reliable and available at all times, otherwise, they would be a leave risk. I am against this practice, as people usually apply to more than one position, but it can happen.

Could you please illustrate" im against this practice "

At the peak of attrition it should not be the case. They ask to make sure if they have the required budget for that role.

They ask so that they won't waste their and your time if they can't match/exceed ur expectations. If they are very well in your budget interviews get scheduled

I have an assistant who lately has been starting work early (over an hour before our office opens) so she can get off early on Fridays.

Am I wrong to be annoyed at this? Debating whether I need to ask her to adjust her hours to better match up with the rest of the firm.

Now junior has to submit all his work directly to the partner and I won’t be fixing all his mistakes anymore.
