Yes I agree. If someone is able to do their job from home, I don’t think they should take the risk if they’re not comfortable doing so. Continuing to work from home will also help to lessen any impact of a second wave if there is one.

Thanks for the validation haha

Totally. This government will likely tell us to go back to work before we should. Holding off on that order until the coast is actually clear (if the company can) would be a good thing.

I miss people, and I think we do our jobs better when we sit together and work together. Plus Ill be tired of this in a couple of months. I know there are “introverts” that prefer work to just be email, but I still think we’re in a social job, even in normal times.

I wrote a rec letter for one of my legal assistants for law school right before COVID got bad and we all started working remote. Ever since then, this assistant has seemingly been slacking. There’s only so much I can actually see/review without seriously micromanaging her. I’ve spoken to her about her slacking at least twice and both times she just brushed it off. I want to withdraw my rec letter, but I feel like it’s too late. She is leaving at the end of the summer. Should I just let it be?
