Lawyers work long hours. They end up sleep-deprived. Do their employers care to do anything about it?
From a recent New York Times article:
Q. If it’s natural to rest in the afternoon, why don’t more companies tolerate napping?
A. A few companies do offer nap rooms as a perk. And in some businesses where safety is paramount, some companies have seen the wisdom of permitting naps, Dr. Turek said.
Does anyone know of a law firm with a “nap room”? When we worked at a firm and got tired, after pulling an all-nighter or something close to one, sometimes we’d close our office door and take a brief nap in our chair. When we were stuck in the office all night, and waiting for something from Word Processing or Duplicating, we’d nap on our office floor (which was carpeted, thankfully).
But there has to be a better way. If medical residents who are on-call get nap rooms, why can’t Biglaw lawyers?
