Google have announced that it may cut the pay of employees who opt to work from home.

The rapid adoption of digital communication tools during the pandemic has proved that working from home is a viable alternative to the daily commute to head office.

That’s why it’s surprising to learn that Google in the US now plans to implement a policy of salary reductions for those aiming to work from home permanently.

The technology giant has developed a Work Location Tool that lets employees see the effects of working remotely.

A Google spokesperson said: “Our new Work Location Tool was developed to help employees make informed decisions about which city or state they work from and any impact on compensation if they choose to relocate or work remotely.”

There is currently no plan for this tool to apply to UK employees.
