JPMorgan is forcing everyone back to the office by September 21st (on a rotational basis apparently). That CNBC article was just smoke and mirrors. They literally couldn’t care less about their workforce

I’m so sorry, that’s terrible. Grateful to be at MS. Most of my team is high risk, or has a high risk family member. We are not going back until 2021. Everyone is working hard from home.

It’s the same across the street, most financial firms are making a big push on return, just ask around. Banks prob (or definitely) won’t pay your Uber or give you weekly Covid test because it’s a bank. Hint: there are other financial firms have that offer to lure ppl back.

We’re doing wfh one week, in office the next. Frequent cleaning happening throughout the day. High risk individuals stay home. Doesn’t seem that hard or risky imo

Curious, what do they mean by “force” - are they actually planning on cutting people who stand their ground and refuse to come back? Also, what are they doing about infrequent public transportation, interior cleaning/safety measures, etc.?

Granted I’m no longer in IB, but my company forced us to take a Covid test (two weeks before returning it was pointless) and is forcing us back in next week. If we refused on either or didn’t have a doctors note claiming high risk then, in their own words, they’ll be “terminating the relationship”.

Frequent cleanings are security theater dude. It’s a respiratory virus that spreads from particles in the air.

They said we’d get atleast two weeks notice, so earliest we could go back is the following week

Oh please - I’ve had to return to the office since the first week of June.
