Amazon Employees Can Work From Home Until June 2021

As more COVID-19 cases starting surging again across the country, Amazon has decided to allow its employees to work from home until July 2021.

With the COVID-19 pandemic showing no signs of stopping, work from home has turned into a somewhat of a permanent solution.

Tech giants around the world have had to acknowledge this reality. And recently, Amazon has announced that its employees don’t have to go back to the workplace until July 2021.

The company’s decision to extend work from home solution was revealed in a report of Bloomberg. In an email to Bloomberg, an Amazon spokeswoman said that the company continued to follow local government guidance and put the health of their employees as one of their top priorities.

The statement read further that the decision would be applied to any role that could be effectively done from home.

Amazon’s US employees have been working from home since January 2021. And now, as more cases starting surging again across the country, the company has decided to extend the period to July 2021.

Before Amazon, Google has also announced that its employees could work from home until July 2021 as well.

Other tech giants including Facebook, Microsoft, and Twitter have told their staff to work from home permanently if they want to.

However, the arrangement of Amazon still meets with criticism as for an e-commerce giant, only a part of its workforce can work from home. However, for people working at the fulfillment centers, it is impossible as they need to keep the packages moving.
