Employer's Work Policies Are Being Reevaluated
From Redditor u/Nyrin:
This event is bringing a lot of attention to employer policies on sick leave, remote work, and workplace hygiene. We're very likely going to see some degree of enduring changes in the aftermath and they'll largely all be ones that make things better.
It's sad that we needed a pandemic panic to get there, but it is a silver lining.
