Following is an excerpt:
On the other end of the spectrum, Mandelman also is advising a New York company planning to lay off at least 25 people sometime in February — that’s plenty of time to make sure they don’t discriminate against any class of employees or run afoul of federal notification laws.
“This is pretty much all I’m doing these days,” Mandelman says. “I’ve been doing this since 1999, and I’ve never seen anything like this before.”
Mandelman didn’t have specific billable hours at his fingertips when he talked to The Am Law Daily, but employment firms nationwide say they are setting workload records as companies lay off employees at rates not seen in many, many years.
