About this Deal
Amazon will let corporate employees work from home through June 2021 amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“We continue to prioritize the health of our employees and follow local government guidance," said Amazon in an email to USA TODAY. "Employees with work that can effectively be done from home can continue to do that work from home through June 30, 2021."
The decision was first reported by Bloomberg.
The Seattle tech giant is not alone in the work-from-home move. Earlier this month, Microsoft unveiled plans to adopt a "hybrid workplace" environment where most roles to remain remote less than 50% of the time with manager approval, even after the pandemic ends.
