Google Suggest All North American Employees To Work From Home Due To Coronavirus Outbreak
Google issued one of the most sweeping cautionary edicts, recommending on Tuesday that all its employees in North America work from home until at least April 10 amid the novel coronavirus outbreak.
Google offices will remain open to workers if they have to be physically present for their job, according to Business Insider. CEO Sundar Pichai also urged people to “contribute” to social distancing in a Tuesday evening tweet:
The company is also setting up a fund to ensure sick leave for hourly and temporary workers globally, as well as for its previously announced plan to pay those whose services may not be fully needed while full-time employees work from home.
