The entitlement..

Let me start by saying I am all for remote work and think its the future.. But the the person in this article rubs me the wrong way... claiming anxiety as a health reason for an exception to RTO and suing the company when it was denied is next level entitlement.


Look, if you want to work remotely, find a job that allows it. How could you honestly continue working for a company that you just sued?? Seems like a cash grab to me.

Meh - I always like to see how these play out, though you right it could be petty (all depends how real the med situation is) it could give employees a few more rights and I'm all for that in the current landscape.

I agree with that, always good to empower the people. It just seems a little crazy to sue your employer rather then find a new job that aligns with your work requirements in my opinion

Some key details are lacking here, but yeah suing feels a little much; find another job instead.

It also says he has congenial heart disease, if that is severe maybe he wanted to stay close to doctors or family? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

The only situation I could see possible legal action would be if you were hired or classified as fully remote and essentially given the green light to relocate further from the office. Like, far from reasonable commuting distance (i.e. office in NYC, you moved to Pittsburgh), and your employer did RTO with less than a month's notice, no relocation assistance, and if you refused they'd consider that resignation and would challenge any unemployment claims. Otherwise, I'm not sure a lawsuit is warranted.

I agree. Changing the conditions of the job would be a really good reason to take action.

Now his name is everywhere as well, probably not the publicity he was hoping for, can imagine he will may find it difficult to get a new role. If you dont like the rules, theres 3 options, comply, get a new job or start your own company, its that simple.

Anybody been on the hiring end recently? I'm sure it's due to bad advice on LinkedIn, but recently had a candidate make a wild laundry list of requests surrounding a 3 day/wk office policy:

- Company car- Monthly stipend for gas- Toll pass- Ability to leave at 3p to avoid traffic (they live 15 minutes from the office)

I mean, I was willing to commute 2 hours each way 4x a week without negotiating any stipulations. Most likely would have just found a cheap place to stay during the week and only driven Mondays and Thursdays. In this job market, negotiation just isn't possible.

They decided not to hire me out of concerns about the commute. Ok I guess.

Donโ€™t get me wrong I love being 100% remote, and would be upset if I were forced the RTO.

Definitely going to be interesting to see these scenarios start to play out. If youโ€™re doing your job remotely, hitting all metrics, getting consistently good performance reviews then there could be an argument made for fighting it, but most companies can simply point to at will employment statutes.

Interesting. I did finally figure out my career in my late 20s โ€ฆ but I also didnโ€™t assume I should get that kind of treatment. Thatโ€™s wild. I really wonder where those demands are coming from.

No clue. They were laid out in an attempt to negotiate against an alleged 2nd offer. We kindly said thank you and good luck.

As long as you think the boss can be โ€œgoodโ€ you wonโ€™t get it. Bosses are bosses because they exploit others.

A lot of bosses will get fired soon because they are proving that they don't know how to do their jobs and relying for the people in the team to teach you. Thus coming to the office is ideal for them

The truth is unless your job function requires you to be on site or it cant be done you shouldn't be forced to any reason given is legitimate as far as im concerned
