Facebook employees will be allowed to work from home until July 2021 as the coronavirus outbreak doesn’t look like it will be slowing down anytime soon. The social networking company will also be giving these employees $1,000 for their home offices.
This is another company that has taken the step towards allowing their staff to work from home as Apple had made this move until June 2021, and Twitter has proposed that some of its employees can remotely work indefinitely.
In an emailed statement, a Facebook spokeswoman said, “Based on guidance from health and government experts, as well as decisions drawn from our internal discussions about these matters, we are allowing employees to continue voluntarily working from home until July 2021”.
“In addition, we are giving employees an additional $1,000 for home office needs,” they added.
Within a restricted capacity, the company says it will continue to open up its offices wherever the government allows it and where virus alleviation would have taken place for around two months.
But it also added that it is not likely that a lot of locations will open up in the US and Latin America prior to the year ending, as coronavirus numbers continue to rise.
