Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced in a weekly Q&A virtual meeting that all corporate employees are allowed to work from home until July 2021 and will be provided with additional $1,000 for home office needs.
As many as 48,000 people are employed with Facebook, which has cancelled of all its major events until June 2021.
“Based on guidance from health and government experts, as well as decisions drawn from our internal discussions about these matters, we are allowing employees to continue voluntarily working from home until July 2021,” a Facebook spokeswoman told Reuters.
“In addition, we are giving employees an additional $1,000 for home office needs,” she added.
