Has anyone’s company provided support for ergonomics specifically or shared resources to avoid issues? This feels like a massive workmen’s com issue waiting to happen

Worked remote in another country last year and fell in love with it. Asked work for approval to live and work their remotely full time. I was told no and that no one is able to work out of the country because of taxes etc, which is fair. I later find out that I have coworkers who are lying about working in other countries and some who got approval to work in other countries. Yet I was told it was not allowed. Would you go to HR and be like wtf? Sounds like a rule that applies only sometimes.

Does anyone have any insight as to when things are going to go “back to normal” in California in terms of needing to appear in person for smaller status conferences, hearings, depositions, etc. instead of doing it via zoom? I am permanently remote but a lot of my cases are in courts that are a good 1.5-2 hour drive from me and I’m starting to feel anxious about when I’ll have to start going in person for these types of things because of the distance.

Hey guys I’m staff2 in audit and will be promoted to senior in June. I would expect around 25-30% raise. Currently 100% remote work & don’t see going back to the office soon. Also, I need to pay 20k bonus back for breaking retention period. I recently got an offer for a valuation consultant position at mid size firm with 15% raise and go to office 3 days a week. Feel like valuation position is more attractive in long term but think getting lowballed extremely. What do you think?

Suffering from crippling work related anxiety lately. Have always found this job stressful at times but with wfh the anxiety is constant and paralyzing and unbearable. I have regular panic attacks, question everything I do, feel like I’m never doing a good enough job and am really down on myself. Part of this I’m sure is that I live by myself and am alone with my thoughts all day, part is that I’m new to the manager role. Any coping strategies??
