Work From Home No More? – Employee Rights/ Labour Relations



To print this article, all you need is to be registered or login on Mondaq.com.

During the past two and a half years, many white-collar
employees worked from home, or, in some cases, from Starbucks,
shared work spaces and even while attempting to vacation away from
home. While the jury is still out on whether work-from-home is an
enduring and/or healthy model, there is one major industry that is
aggressively pushing for a complete (or nearly complete) return to
office: the financial services industry. Top executives at several
of the largest financial services firms are loudly advocating for a
strict return to office policy, along with anecdotal reports of
routine attendance checks.

Yet despite this trend, the New York Post reported that a
majority of junior bankers are pushing to continue hybrid work
rather than returning to the office five days a week. Large
accounting firms and large law firms, who service these financial
services firms, have adopted widely divergent policies: some
accounting firms have shifted to a nearly complete work-from-home
model, while many law firms prefer employees to be in the office a
fair amount of time. It remains to be seen where financial services
firms will land on this issue, and in turn if those firms’
legal and accounting service providers will align their policies
accordingly.

The content of this article is intended to provide a general
guide to the subject matter. Specialist advice should be sought
about your specific circumstances.
