Anonymous sources are telling Above the Law that their 2009 paychecks are identical to their 2008 ones — with no actual announcement of a salary freeze. Which is really pissing people off.

ATL identifies the culprits as Biglaw firms Mayer Brown of Chicago, DC’s Steptoe & Johnson and NYC’s Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP.

Today was the first pay day in 2009 for Mayer Brown NY. In the past, our first pay check of the year automatically reflected salary increases. No such increase today. Smells like a pay freeze?!? With the added courtesy of letting ADP announce it instead of management.

But…

I work at Mayer Brown. Every year they raise salaries in March and retroactively pay associates what they would have gotten since March. Definitely getting sick of panickers here. These people need to get a life.

Hmn. Does that last guy really think he’s getting a raise this year, with the entire industry freezing salaries? The only question here seems to be, will the partners announce the freeze like professionals, or go all passive-aggressive?
