I wish we could say “smooth sailing” this morning but we know that not to be the case here on the S.S. Heller Ehrman. Here are the issues being kicked around via comments and e-mail and some requiring more info from our readers and passengers:
COBRA – many are wondering whether or not COBRA will be offered at all and what to do about health care and other benefits. If COBRA is not available or too expensive, what are the alternatives to COBRA in securing coverage? Stay tuned – we’ll have some tips and resources by end of day.
Incoming Associates – why are we receiving inquiries as to the status of incoming associates and clerkships? It seems as if there has been little or no communication with this group. What gives?
Parental Leave and Sabbaticals – what is the status of attorneys and staff currently on parental leave? what is the status of staff currently on sabbatical? what is the status of sabbaticals as a pending benefit?
Weekend Discussions – what happened over the weekend in terms of other firms taking over specific pratice areas? any news?
Office Space – some have stated they expect to be asked to leave in the next two weeks if office space is needed (being sublet or provided to other firms taking over practice group), can anyone confirm?
Over and out.
