Elon Musk changes Twitter’s remote work rules, again

Elon Musk is changing Twitter’s overtime rules again amid a deadline for employees to commit to his vision for a “hardcore” company. Musk, who previously telecommuted with Twitter, has now revealed that some remote work is possible, and The Championship report.

“When it comes to remote work, it’s just that your boss takes responsibility for making sure you’re contributing,” Musk wrote in a new memo to Twitter staff. He added that teams should meet in person at least once a month although weekly meetings are “ideal.”

Musk’s latest comments on remote work come one day after Twitter employees were told they “want to be part of the new Twitter” where “long hours and high intensity” are expected. Workers who did not check the “yes” box would be provided with a separation on the accompanying Google Form.

Now, Musk appears to be concerned that not enough employees are buying into his “extremely difficult” Twitter vision. Bloomberg Musk is reportedly putting “key employees” on his plans and has tapped other leaders “to convince employees to stay” at the company.

But while some remote work may seem like a win for Twitter employees, who have had a “work from anywhere” policy for more than two years, Musk has shown he’s more than willing to punish managers for remote employees. fall short of his expectations. “At the risk of stating the obvious, any manager who falsely claims that someone reporting to them is doing excellent work or that a certain role is essential, whether remote or not, will be terminated from the company,” he wrote.

Since Musk took over Twitter, the employees who survived the initial job cuts have faced increased uncertainty and mounting pressure as the new CEO has prioritized features like paid verification. Esther Crawford, the Twitter manager in charge of the revamped Twitter Blue, posted a photo of herself sleeping on the floor of a Twitter conference room in the days immediately following Musk’s takeover.

But not everyone was as willing, or as able, to adapt to Musk’s demands. And Twitter’s lawyer recently told other employees that Musk’s requirement that workers leave the office or be fired may be a possibility. Now, at least one former employee appears to be testing that notion, and has filed a lawsuit alleging that Musk’s new policies discriminate against disabled workers.
