Amazon to permit workers to work from home till June 2021 Amazon.com Inc extended the timeline for its workers to continue work from the office on Tuesday.
Presently, Amazon workers whose work can be done from home will be able to work from home till June 2020. The step has been taken in light of the coronavirus pandemic. “Employees who work in a part that can viably be done from home are welcome to do so until June 30, 2021,” an Amazon representative was quoted as saying by Reuters. The extension is applicable globally.
Earlier, the option for work from home was available to employees until January 2020. Recently, Amazon said that more than 19,000 of its frontline workers in the US had contracted coronavirus.
Amazon faced flak from staff and unions that alleged it exposed employees to danger by keeping its warehouses open during the pandemic.
