Financial services officer worker
Thu Apr 22 2021
My workplace (financial services office) wants multiple staff in the office. They sent out an email the other day coaching employees on what to say if authorities ask why they are working in the office (where windows don’t open). This business can operate 100% remotely.
In a recent phone meeting, the owner of the business said he was talking to his lawyer and the lawyer advised authorities may be targeting financial services offices in the community for COVID-19 regulation adherence.
My boss said if municipal enforcement comes knocking to NOT ANSWER THE DOOR and say the office is closed.
If this is happening at one workplace, it is happening elsewhere. We need stronger regulations on businesses, so that employees aren’t placed in impossible situations (e.g., economic security vs. public health).
