Norton Rose slashes Middle East work hours as DLA cuts in Dubai
Norton Rose has put more than half of its Middle East staff and lawyers onto four-day weeks in a bid to stave off job cuts in the region, which is feeling the pain of the recession. The top 10 City firm confirmed that 50%-60% of staff across Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Dubai are now working a four-day week in response to the downturn. Almost all staff in the region opted into the flexible working scheme in April, and the firm implemented the scheme a few weeks ago. The firm is also considering whether to put some staff on sabbatical.
