Good Morning

I am grumpy. An attorney I hired a little over 90 days ago is leaving for another firm. That is fine, and part of the deal. The part that isn’t fine is the 3 business days notice I was given. Very unprofessional, and surprisingly antagonistic for someone I have been nice and generous to. For example, she missed time when her daughter had a baby and I paid her for her missed days even though she had no sick leave. I would have appreciated a little more consideration on her way out the door. When I interview people, I ask how soon they can start, and I wouldn’t hire someone who told me they felt no need to give reasonable notice to their employer.

At this point, I’d like her out of my office ASAP, but my senior lawyer needs a couple of things from her. Grr....
