With Illinois starting to reopen, I saw non-essential businesses will be allowed to reopen with safety cautions put in place and a strong recommendation to wfh. How likely is it offices open up now?

33% likelihood? I mean what kinda of a response are you looking for OP? All depends on the company. A lot of larger firms, ourselves included, are in no rush to reopen the offices. Others will be in a different spot.

Lol, I was thinking the same^

EY has a phased approach and most of the guidelines are double what state and federal guidelines are (28 day downward trend vs 14, etc.). I don't think many firms will rush to get back to the office

Yeah I think most companies will take it slow and safe.

Should have been clearer. I guess have any of your firms talked about going in? I know a few friends in industry that have already been told they'll start staggering people into the office on a rotational basis

Can someone explain to me what is the point of "staggering" and "rotating" if people cannot go within 6 feet of each other - i.e., no meetings, no collab, no team/group sessions where ideas can be brainstormed and shared...

Same here, small software company, we are not reopening until phase 4. What’s the point opening for up to 10 people office? More expenses than benefits.

Yeah it’s going to be a company by company thing, and I’m sure most will be more than understanding to let people continue to wfh until they’re comfortable or able to return to the office as long as their productivity isn’t affected

New office life will likely be a mess. Limited elevator capacity, temperature checks, “open floor plans” / shared seating needs to be reconfigured for social distancing, and 1 positive test will shut the office down for 2 weeks. Deloitte CEO said we shouldn’t expect any company-wide return to 100% in office work through 2020

My MIL has made remarks to my husband that she doesn’t understand why we need a nanny for our infant since I am able to WFH (I’m a biglaw associate).

She was a SAHM so I guess I understand why she feels that way, but how do I explain to her why these things are necessary? I actually love my MIL but this is driving me nuts.

Just got a new job and during my interview process I asked about WFH but was given some vague answers. I figured I would get clarification in my offer/onboarding but it looks like there is an expectation that I need to work from the office for a year minimum before I can start a WFH hybrid option (max 3 days). As somebody who thrived WFH, I am devastated… and it doesn’t help that my whole team is WFH hybrid right now too. Any advice on how to handle this? Don’t wanna sit alone in the office.

We also just seemed to relate on a lot of things.
