  • Vision - Through A Glass, Darkly

    As a former Heller Ehrman employee, I didn't even know that the firm was about to implode since I, like 700+ other employees, were constantly kept in the dark.

    And employers trying to screw employees out of what is owed them is not new. In October I was laid off along with close to 700 other employees at my law firm - and no, I am not an attorney. Just someone who wiped attorney butt all day.

    Just like Republic Windows & Doors here in Chicago they won't pay accrued vacation (I am sitting on over 225 hours) or the WARN Act monies as required by law. You'd think that lawyers would know what laws to follow and not to break! At least 300 of us have not found new employment in this economy and are looking forward to Crappy Holidays thanks to Heller Ehrman as well as Bank of America and Citibank who are making decisions not to pay us.
