Elon Musk Lets Twitter Admins Authorize Remote Work at Their Own Risk
Twitter CEO Elon Musk, who has been laying off employees and contractors for the micro-blogging platform, has now asked management to authorize remote work for his team members at risk to their jobs. On Thursday, Musk said in an email to his staff, “Regarding remote work, all you need to do to get approval is that your boss is committed to making sure you’re making a positive contribution. You’re also expected to have in-person meetings. .” and your partner in reasonable peace, every week, but not less than once a month.”
“At the risk of stating the obvious, any manager who lies that someone they report to is doing an outstanding job or that a role is important, whether remote or not, will be out of the company,” he added, according to reports by The Verge.
Recently, Musk cleared the air surrounding his ‘Work From Home’ policies for employees on Twitter.
“If it can’t happen in an organized way or they have important personal matters, staying at home is fine.” Musk wrote, confirming that employees can work from home but under conditions.
“Working remotely is also fine if their manager ensures efficiency.” Musk added.
On November 10, Musk wrote in an email to employees, “Management will send me alternative lists for review and approval.
But now Musk’s latest email indicates that any manager who stood up to a remote worker or lied about someone reporting to him was doing a great job will be terminated from Twitter.
“They should act like they’re working somewhere else,” Musk wrote in response to a Twitter user who was asked to comment on his previous “going to work is an old concept”.
A disabled employee is currently suing Twitter over Musk’s remote work ban.
In about two weeks under Musk’s leadership, Twitter has fired more than 3,700 people, and dozens of senior executives have resigned. Musk previously issued an order to Twitter employees to do “extremely difficult” work or leave.
