Amazon Says Employees Who Don’t , Come to Office 3 Times a Week Can Be Fired.
According to new Amazon manager guidelines, employees who refuse to work from the office at least three days a week can now be terminated, 'Fortune' reports.
Workplace leaders were reportedly told to have a preliminary meeting with any employee who doesn't come into the office enough.
If they continue to refuse to come into the office at least three days a week after being warned, they can be let go.
If the employee does not demonstrate immediate and sustained attendance after the first conversation, managers should then conduct a follow-up discussion within a reasonable time frame (depending on the employee situation, ~1-2 weeks), Via Amazon manager guidelines.
This conversation will 1) reinforce that return to office 3+ days a week is a requirement of their job, and 2) explain that continued non-compliance without a legitimate reason may lead to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of your employment, Via Amazon manager guidelines.
Amazon has received continuous pushback over its return-to-office mandate, 'Fortune' reports.
Over 28,000 Amazon workers belong to a Slack channel called "Remote Advocacy.".
Thousands more signed a petition against returning to the office and staged a walkout in protest.
But Amazon isn't backing down.
If you can’t disagree and commit, it’s probably not going to work out for you at Amazon, Andy Jassy, Amazon CEO, via statement
