work from home:

    (Reuters) - JPMorgan Chase & Co told thousands of workers across its consumer unit that they could plan to work from home until next year, Bloomberg News reported on Monday, citing memos sent to the bank's staff. The directive applies to most of JPMorgan's U.S.-based employees in the consumer unit and excludes branch workers and some in operations, according to the report. JPMorgan did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Earlier this month, Bloomberg reported that the bank had sent its Manhattan workers home after an employee in the equities trading division tested positive for COVID-19. JPMorgan executives had previously told managing directors and some executive directors within its sales and trading operation that they must return to...
    Working from home may become a post-pandemic way of life in one California community. San Francisco Bay area officials approved a plan last week requiring large, office-based businesses to have employees work from home three days a week in a bid to fight climate change, according to a report. The decision, by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, was approved 11-1 as part of a larger effort to determine what the area should look like in 30 years — and would have been unthinkable before the pandemic sent droves of workers home. “There is an opportunity to do things that could not have been done in the past,” said Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, a member of the commission.

    A new proposal could require Californians to work remotely three days a week - even after the COVID-19 pandemic - to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to aid in environmental efforts. A number of Bay Area residents, including employees at large tech firms, were concerned over a new proposal approved by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission on Wednesday. The controversial proposal would effectively ensure that sizable, office-based companies kept 60 per cent of their workers at home on any given workday to curb climate change.   'Given the changes in travel patterns during the coronavirus pandemic, there was strong support for bolder policies on this front in the Final Blueprint, including a mandate for office-based employers,' the proposal read. 'To ensure this strategy...
    The Department of Education will now allow many more teachers to work from home this upcoming school year as part of a new deal with their union, officials said late Friday. Previously, any teacher who was not a given a specific coronavirus exemption was required to be present in school each day — even when teaching remote classes without kids present. But the United Federation of Teachers pushed back on that in recent weeks and ultimately won the major concession. “The DOE will be instructing principals that all UFT-represented employees in all job titles who have no on-site duties or responsibilities have the option to work remotely,” the union said in a letter to members Friday. The DOE had...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A 16-year-old boy was mercilessly gunned down on a West Oak Lane sidewalk, still wearing his Burger King uniform. As police search for the killers and gun violence soars in Philadelphia, the teen’s high school principal says he was a quiet young man and well-liked by his teachers. Flashing lights, spent shell casings, and homicide detectives playing like a record on repeat. Philadelphia’s sad No. 1 hit, “another life lost.” “It’s not easy about bullets, and they have no names,” a neighbor said. The neighbor is right. Bullets don’t, but the people they kill do. “He’d been here since first grade,” Veronica Joyner, Mathematics, Civics and Sciences Charter School founder and principal, said.

"There is going to be a shift in emphasis." "They are reluctant steps that we're taking, but they're absolutely necessary because as we were reminded yesterday and as you've been reporting the rate of infection is increasing, the number of...

    Long hours, extra work and the feeling of having to ‘always be on’ are making people experience career burnout by an early age of 32, a new survey reveals. Approximately 59 percent of the respondents blamed it on working long of hours, noting the increase started when they transitioned to remote employment due to coronavirus lockdowns – some have worked an extra 59 hours in five months. Other responses include not taking enough days off, pressure to complete more tasks and just under half of the participants dealing with burnout have quit their job because of the exhaustion. However, the survey found that those who fall in Generation Z are already worn down because of the ‘always on’ work culture....

    Ample lighting, open work surfaces, power outlets, charging stations, privacy, noise-canceling headphones, uncluttered walls and backgrounds: The list goes on and on of nice-to-haves for the work-from-home office or the learn-from-home classroom. When several working or learning spaces need to fit into the same home, an open mind, ingenuity and flexibility are the key first ingredients. Scientists and philosophers for decades have lauded necessity as the mother of invention, an idea that perfectly applies to life during a pandemic. But what if we allow that thinking to include the idea that frustration is the mother of creativity, given that work from home and remote learning during a pandemic increase the need for home-office and classroom setups to meet entire households’...

    We’re calling it: 2020 is the year of the “pivot.”   The coronavirus has forced — or, maybe inspired? — us to judiciously reconsider everything from where we live to what we value most in our homes. Amid shutdowns and evolving safety guidelines, businesses have swiftly adopted new business models, selling subscription boxes and going virtual to stay connected with customers during These Unprecedented Times. We’ve also become more thoughtful neighbors and enthusiastic cheerleaders of our local businesses. As we all try to understand and embrace “a new normal,” many of us are pondering a career change. Millions of Americans have been laid off since the start of the pandemic, thrusting them into job searches for the first time in years. For others, it may be the momentum of change and the quest for self-fulfillment...

    Labor beat: Beware the ‘Work From Home’ Model The response to the COVID work-from-home “experiment” has been “largely positive” — yet Hyon Chu at City Journal warns that, “taken to its natural conclusion,” such policies could have a “far-reaching” and “ultimately negative” effect on US workers. The arrangement offers “more time to spend with the family, freedom to live virtually anywhere in the world and little or no commute time.” But corporations may realize they don’t need as many “regulars” and opt for less pricey “contract or as-needed workers.” They may also “exchange” current staff for “cheaper offshore versions,” a trend fueled by unemployment and the “weakened” power of the labor force. Chu’s advice: “Proceed with caution. Many who currently...

    Sixty-five percent of Americans working from home during the coronavirus pandemic are working longer hours than ever before, according to new research.

    Do the same rules apply about companies prohibiting workplace romances if the entire firm is now working remotely? Huh? Are you contemplating a remote romantic relationship? Aside from that poetic alliteration, I’m not sure what you mean. If your employer prohibits employees from engaging in romantic relationships, you understand that doesn’t mean that they are prohibiting romantic liaisons just inside the office building, right? So whether you work in different locations, be it office or home, their policy applies. I do think this pandemic will cause many employers to rethink some of their work rules, but unless and until your company says it is relaxing this policy then you follow your heart with the risk of losing your job....

    SAN ANTONIO – A Bexar County purchasing employee facing felony drug charges remains on the job, a decision that prompted Sheriff Javier Salazar to recently ask that she be kept away from doing work on behalf of his agency. Nicole Segreto, 37, remains on bond for two felony drug possession charges, after she was taken into custody at her far West Side home earlier this month. Segreto originally faced three felony drug charges after sheriff’s investigators said they carried out a search warrant at her home in an unrelated criminal case the first week of August and found heroin, cocaine and prescription drugs. However, it appears prosecutors only moved forward with two of those charges. Salazar said during a Zoom...
