Do you think that remote work is here to stay for most companies? I've been hearing rumors about management making us return to the office and I'm really hoping it'll be optional.

People who moved remotely to other states and cities during the pandemic will be asked to return to the offices. Those who don’t comply will be terminated. It wasn’t never meant to be a forever remote thing.


some will stay, most will not


Most companies? Absolutely not. I put it at around 20% overall.


If being remote is in your contract and they try to force you back to the office, call an employment lawyer.
Also could pull the disability card as under the ADA, employers have to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with known disabilities - and if you've been working remote already, it's kind hard for them to argue its not reasonable.


Good for you. Companies are sneaky and they’ll find a way to let you go. Either by a layoff or by a performance issue they can invent. Good luck with that.

Most will be telling people to return to the office to fill up the vacant office space they’re still paying for. Only about 25% will be able to work remotely only in the same state and city. Lots of jobs say Remote or hybrid if you’re living in the state they’re hiring in.

Why get out of expensive offices when you can just force people to be there and keep paying for it?

We have most of our employees remote and none of them want to come back. Many live out of state (and country) and they are senior people

400 employees, so pretty small
