Amazon has sent emails “to those it believes are not complying with its return-to-office policies,” reports CNN:
The message highlights Amazon’s determination to enforce its rules amid an employee backlash to the policy, which requires workers to report to an office at least three days a week, and in the face of a broader push by companies to scale back on remote work.
Screenshots of the email circulating on social media show that Amazon told some employees they were “not currently meeting our expectation of joining your colleagues in the office at least three days a week, even though your assigned building is ready… We expect you to start coming into the office three or more days a week now,” the email continued.
It added that since the policy went into effect in May, many Amazon employees have complied, “and you can feel the surge in energy and collaboration happening among Amazonians and across teams.”
Amazon told employees that the email “was sent to employees who have badged in fewer than 3 days a week for 5 or more of the past 8 weeks, have not badged in 3 days a week for 3 or more of the past 4 weeks, and their building has been ready for 8 weeks or more.”
CNN adds that a followup email “acknowledged that some may have received the notice in error and urged those individuals to contact their managers to correct the mistake.”
