@sdpy+16bAWDdK OP said "by Sept" the other post states extending into Oct. Do you not understand the concept of TIME...???? if rotation is thru Sept how can it end BY SEPT?

the OP was just b—s—. they will go to 100% earliest Nov, by January certainly.

@somh+16bAWDdK Before spouting off, I suggest you look at the original post, which stated 100% by September. Also, forward looking schedules were not the same for every BU. They just started updating ours today. Our current ones had ended at the end of this rotation.

@sqvh+16bAWDdK. huh? the schedules are already they mid Oct, so just a 2 week extension..? lol. that makes Nov a plausible timeframe.

This rumor appears to be busted, as they're rolling out the updated rotation schedules that go in to late October. So unless they plan on changing that after the fact it looks like two more months of 50%.

not sure 100% by Sept. maybe Nov though. not that a month or so makes a difference. i suspect they're looking for another 5% of quick attrition by end of 1q though..,

There are covid cases in offices. How will they be reported to the company or it will just be only communicated to the office and people impacted?

@8rot+16bAWDdK when they go 100% in September they'll open up all rooms, but limit number of people, eg take out chairs, etc.

again, they are accelerating the move to 100% to encourage people to leave or take more 90 day loa. since the Tan-man believes a deep recession is coming this approach enables large numbers of people to attrite or take the loa. money saved!

If they really want to push 100% it is truly bizarre. Only three conference rooms are open at my site, and two are only for 2 people, the other big one is for 12. So what are they gaining by making everyone come in. I really don't care either way, but if the facility can't be utilized then what is the point? I actually want to have whiteboard design meetings but their rules prohibit it. So why push everyone back in to the office?

While Broadcom is classified as an essential business, the statement "BRCM has worked with the govt to classify the company as "essential", so that goes above what individual governors say" is not correct. The restrictions in the public health orders in SF and SC counties apply to ALL business that operate in their jurisdictions, including essential businesses.

Furthermore, the California list of essential business classifications (https://covid19.ca.gov/essential-workforce/) clearly indicates essential workers can be excepted from stay home public health directives "if remote working is not practical" That is not the case for many Broadcom employees for whom remote working is practical.

BRCM can force you back or you are relinquishing your position and they can terminate with no severance. As for being back in the office 100% of people, BRCM has worked with the govt to classify the company as "essential", so that goes above what individual governors say. You should have taken your online COVID training and basically signed off that you will not sue if you get sick. Don't think if you take time off that your position will be held.

It's clear that Broadcom doesn't care. But just so everyone is clear, the company requiring employees who can do their jobs from home is in violation of the Public Health orders in Santa Clara and SF. All impacted employees should contact their local officials.

https://www.sccgov.org/sites/covid19/Pages/order-health-officer-07-02-20.aspx
"Maximization of Telework. All businesses must continue to maximize the number of personnel who work remotely from their place of residence. For clarity, all businesses must require that all personnel carry out their job functions remotely if they are able to do so."

similar policy in SF: https://www.sfdph.org/dph/alerts/files/C19-07f-Shelter-in-Place-Health-Order.pdf

You say no one has gotten sick – that is untrue as some have and its not (obviously) being reported out to the general mass. Our office ran out of masks so the guard at the front desk said to complain to HR. HR did not respond after many repeated attempts. With tracing apps and taking the online covid training, the management has covered their bases for legal liability.

@ogy+16bAWDdK You are right, the employees have no say. But state governors and health officials do. If they find out a large office is jammed packed on a daily basis, especially if they're still in a near lock down, then they might step in. This becomes even more likely if transmission rates are still high or increasing. It's really not hard for them to find out either. Almost ever Broadcom office is in an office park. When all of the parking lots around the other buildings are nearly empty and yours is completely full that is going to raise red flags.

@ogy+16bAWDdK

It will fly, why? They doubled from 25% to 50% no mass out breaks. Also employees have surrendered their health to Broadcom a long time ago. Employees have zero say and Broadcom has us all on a short leash. They know it, we know it. Nothing we can do.

Post ID: @fjy+16bAWDdK

Yeah, that's all well and good, but I doubt that will fly in many US locations. While I do not support what many governors are doing, the courts have been. I suggest Hock look what just happened in New Jersey and rethink his plans.
