What happens to my job if Lehman Brothers Collapses and files for bankruptcy? Do i go into work tomorrow?
I have just joined Lehman Brothers as a graduate this week and been there a year on contract. What happens to my job if a firm files for bankruptcy? Do i go into work tomorrow? Do we get any redundacy packages?

A buddy of mine worked for Bennigans, when they went out of business he didn't even get paid for his previous two weeks of work. THey had a cool manager who let them clear out the place of food and equipment so they at least walked away with something. Don't go to work you won't be paid for going.

hate to tell you but today they collapsed. 20,000 people will lose their jobs. Not only that Merrill Lynch is now taken over by Bank of America. The recession is flow blown. I just hope we do not have a depression. This is really serious.

Sorry about what happened. Join Goldman Sachs or Morgan Stanley.. they are supposed to be the only US I-banks which are going to survive the market turmoil. Goldman Sachs have almost no real losses and any rumours to the contrary are b.s.
