Amazon tells staff globally to work from home if possible

This post was originally published on this site

(Reuters) – Inc (O:) on Thursday said it was recommending that employees globally work from home this month if they are able to do so, while necessary on-site staff such as warehouse workers would get up to two weeks’ pay if quarantined because of the coronavirus.

The news follows a decision by the world’s largest online retailer earlier this week to extend its work-from-home advisory to include employees in New York and New Jersey as it and other corporations strive to lower the risk of coronavirus transmission among their ranks.
