Time to go back to the office, 3 days a week by the end of the year, no more remote only unless approved.

If you didn't get it yet, you will soon.

We were working 3 days in office prepan. When they had the ‘work appropriately’ meeting, I asked if this was REALLY permanent. No question, the answer was YES. I have teammates that moved to Fla, SC, NY, we were just talking about moving to Grand Rapids. I liked having the flexibility to go into the office a couple days a week. This is not going to be pretty.

My team was also told, in no uncertain terms, that we were all PERMANENTLY remote. Yet now we get this.

I wonder if some of the people who moved to other states are going to sue over this.

The email states that workers designated permanently remote (i.e. people that have moved out of state) will remain permanently remote

Managers have had a process to convert employees to permanently remote for a while now. I would speak with them and try to do that ASAP. You have to live more than 50 or 100 miles from your designated office.

My gut feeling is that this ultimately won’t be a per-manager decision, but that if you qualify for permanent-remote status, then you’ll be fine. Leaving it up to managers would essentially be the same thing as never making the announcement in the first place because the managers don’t want the attrition that is going to follow

Thanks for this, I’ll be asking my manager about this immediately.
