On this episode, we connect with Chicago plaintiffs attorney Jay Edelson, who the New York Times once labeled 'tech's least friended man.' Edelson, founder of 30-lawyer class action firm Edelson P.C., discusses the firm's recent $650 million privacy settlement with Facebook and describes what he's learning about remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic. Edelson also shares his views on the wider industry’s approach to layoffs, summer programs and bonuses.
