    Advice needed!

    So I have been working from home remotely for about 3 months +.

    My job is fully doable from home, and I have been working and doing a good job away from the office.

    Now due to the loosening of restrictions by the UK gov. my workplace has told me that I need to attend 3 days a week and work remotely 2 days a week.

    Does anyone know what the specifics are outlined by the UK gov? As far as I am aware, "work from home is possible" is still the case, but recently a grey area was created where the government says that "workers can be asked back in the office if work is not "effective" from home".

    Anyway if there is anyone who is knowledgeable about this, I'd be grateful for the advice.
    A mother cannot raise a boy to be a man, not because he needs a father figure; but because she favours team vagina over her own son.

    Tradcon women are the most manipulative of all kinds of women, because they infect you with false hope.
    Radfems are your best friend, because they hate you and verbalise it - that's honesty!

    The red pill rage is a process which takes many many years - so be kind and patient with yourself; you will overcome it!

    Aside from any knowledge, what you brought up about being productive from home spells the end of the office building and all its maintenance costs, the same way Amazon decimated the American retail stores.

    Drop a suggestion in your company suggestion box, asking to liquidate the office building for a portion of the savings to cover costs deferred on your home expenses. It's a MGTOW wet dream!
    MGTOW, defined:

    A place and time (where and when) the road to modern man's perdition ends abruptly and permanently.

    Re: Advice needed!

    The advice being given in many countries r.e. returning to the workplace is difficult enough to get through unless you fall into a specific category: e.g. education or hospitality sectors, but in the U.K. it seems particularly vague.

    I’m sure you’ve looked here (though it doesn't seem to help much, a lot of vague messages):

    Our plan to rebuild: The UK Government’s COVID-19 recovery strategy

    All I can say is that companies that are re-opening tend to take legal advice before doing so in order to avoid lawsuits so they probably know what they’re doing. A hell of an assumption, I know.

    My personal take would be that unless you are in a high risk group – elderly or have medical conditions that make you particularly vulnerable – you don’t have much choice in the matter. If they prefer to have their staff in-house rather than working from home it probably has something to do with monitoring their workload.

    From experience in other areas, those that rock the boat even when they are in the right are usually planning their departure whether intentionally or not, so be careful.

    Jackoff's article title got me thinking.

    Getting people back into the office buildings IS part of the rebuilding the old, pre Wu-Flu economy.

    People who work from home don't commute as much, don't spend so much money on "office clothes," don't buy coffee or lunch in the cafeteria or the downtown eateries.

    But most important, if down town is empty, then downtown real estate isn't as valuable. If only 20% of the staff has to be in the office on any given day, why is the company renting so many floors.

    Residential real estate is in trouble, too. The less you have to come into the office, the farther away you can live. If down town is hollowed out, it lessens the demand for short-commute residential real estate.

    =======

    Another way to stretch the at-risk category is to say you are caring for an at-risk person, someone with a compromised immune system, perhaps an elderly parent/in-law/grandparent?
    An escort is a woman you occasionally financially support only when she has sex with you.

    A date is a woman you occasionally financially support in the hope she will have sex with you.

    A wife is a woman you constantly financially support even when she is not having sex with you.

    An ex-wife is a woman you constantly financially support with alimony so she can have sex......with someone else.

    Yes, and this is the case for me. I do have an elderly parent I am currently looking after. But, the issue is that the UK government has made it such a grey area, that I don't know what my rights are in this regard.
    A mother cannot raise a boy to be a man, not because he needs a father figure; but because she favours team vagina over her own son.
