Elon Musk says that Twitter staff can work from their home

Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk, said staff can work from home if it’s not logistically possible to get into the office.

He was responding to a Twitter message from an Irish worker who said he had been told to come back to the office tomorrow.

“Many of us work all around this country and are unable to do so,” the worker wrote. This is in the middle of a housing crisis that Musk has absolutely no idea about, and it is almost impossible to move to Dublin so quickly. This is putting us under an intense amount of stress and uncertainty and unfortunately there is nothing we can do about it,” the worker wrote, reports RTE.

Elon Musk replied that he was not ordering people back into the office.

“This is false. Anyone who can be in office, should be. However, if not logistically possible or they have essential personal matters, then staying home is fine. Working remotely is also ok if their manager vouches for excellence,” Mr Musk wrote, reported RTE.

On Thursday, Bloomberg reported that Musk had first emailed Twitter workers to prepare them for “tough times” and to end remote work unless he personally approved.

According to the report, the new rules should have gone into effect immediately and employees were expected to be in the office for at least 40 hours per week.
