Amazon: The e-commerce giant, Amazon is reportedly getting stricter with its employees. As per a report, the organisation is now allowing managers to fire employees who are not coming office atleast 3 times a week and not following the Amazon’s return to office mandate”. The recent update comes from the new global manager guidance on Amazon’s return-to-policy. The organisation have shared guidelines with the managers. The updates says that Amazon requires its every employess to work from office atleast 3 times a week.
The update has ordered its managers to fire the employees for not following its return-to-Office policy. The new guideline is the strictest measure that the company has taken so far. Amazon has ordered managers to making things clear to the employees and don’t ask them to terminate the employess immediately. The guidelines orders to follow a three-step process to the managers to treat employess who are not following the Amazon’s mandate.
Three Step Process That Amazon Told Its Manager To Follow
First Step: Amazon says its manager to conduct a private discussion to the employess who are not coming office three times a week and manager will be required to document this conversation in an e-mail and if an employee still doesn’t follows the mandate, then they are said to organise a follow up discussion in an appropriate time duration.
Second Step: In the second step, managers are said to explain an employee that continous non-compliance of the Return-to-office can lead to a disciplinary action by the organisation which can also be the reason to termination of the employment.
Third and Last Step: Last step that Amazon mentioned in its guidelines is to engage an HR representative who will give an employee a written warning or take a disciplinary action which will lead to employee’s termination.
The new guidelines comes after the Amazon announced in February to corporate employees they are required to come office. The orgainsation seems to have a stricter stance for its office rules and regulation.
