Google said that while some employees could return to company offices over the summer most of the tech giants workers would likely be allowed to work from home for the rest of the year

"Today, we announced anyone who can do their work remotely can choose to do so through the end of the year", a spokesman said.

Several of the tech giants have plans to reopen offices this summer as shelter-in-place orders are lifted, but encouraged most employees to keep working from home for much longer.

Employees whose work requires a physical presence in the office will be able to reenter the workplace in June or July, according to Pichai.

Facebook employees have been working from home since the nationwide lockdown was initiated in march.

The social media giant according to The Verge, does not expect its offices to open before July.

Other provinces are also taking small steps to reopen, albeit at a slower pace than the hardest-hit province. The plant will close from Wednesday to Friday so all workers can be tested, Larouche said.

"As you can imagine this is an evolving situation as employees and their families make important decisions about returning to work".

In addition, Google set Friday, May 22, as an official day off for employees to decompress, with Pichai expressing concerns over burnout. The social media giant has also chose to keep its offices shut till July first week.

Some employees are nervous about returning to work in the middle of a global pandemic. People are working from home due to Corona epidemic at this time. While doing so, the company said that it is planning for how and when it can bring certain employees back to their offices.

However, if the business was unable to develop a profitable model, sacking and furloughing workers will become the only option as we have seen with Uber, Iroko, Andela and a number of organisations.
