Facebook gives option of working remotely
Facebook said it will let all employees work remotely even after the pandemic if their jobs can be done out of an office, but may reduce their pay if they move to a less-expensive area.
Starting June 15, any Facebook employee can request to work from home, the company said Wednesday in a statement. If those employees move to a lower-cost region, their salaries will be adjusted accordingly and they will be encouraged to go into the office at times to enhance team building.
Facebook said it will be more flexible for employees expected to return to the office. “Guidance is to be in the office at least half the time,” the company said. Facebook also plans to open most of its U.S. offices to at least 50 percent capacity by early September and to reopen fully in October. Until the end of 2021, employees can work as many as 20 business days from another location away from their home area, the company said.
