As a recruiter, I occasionally encounter candidates who have been laid off by their firms. At most AmLaw 100 firms, the dismissal is handled in a fairly civilized manner. The candidate is taken aside and told that “things are not working out”; and that he has approximately three months to find a new position. During this three month grace period, the firm usually allows the candidate to continue to use the office, keep his profile page on the firm website, and generally maintain the appearance of employment while he pursues a new position.
