Final week of Journal Employment Survey
Solicitors and other legal professionals have a week left to take part in the 2019 Journal Employment Survey.
In recent years the annual survey has uncovered valuable data for the Law Society of Scotland on issues such as stress in the workplace, the risk of assault, and the level of bullying and harassment in the profession, as well as matters such as the gender pay gap.
New questions for 2019 cover financial wellbeing, including whether personal finances cause you stress, and what may be stopping you from pursuing a personal financial plan.
A feature reporting on the survey will be published in the December Journal.
Editor Peter Nicholson said: “The Journal Employment Survey has helped to highlight where action is needed to improve working conditions in the legal profession, and to shape the Society's efforts on behalf of members.
“Last year's survey produced an excellent response, and we are hoping that as many people as possible will complete this year's, so we can see what latest trends there may be.”
The survey should take around 10 minutes to complete, and can be accessed by clicking here. It is open until 5pm next Monday, 18 November.
