Norton Rose is set to institute a radical flex-work plan as the London law firm moves to head off job cuts. If approved, the groundbreaking measure, which would include partners, would see staff earn 85 percent of their salary for a four-day workweek, while sabbatical leave of four to 12 weeks would be paid out at 30 percent of base salary. Norton Rose is one of the few top 50 U.K. law firms to avoid formal layoffs so far.
