Thread regarding AIG (American Intl Group Inc.) layoffs

Full Time Remote Workers?

Curious, I thought AIG was doing away with allowing individuals to work fully remote? We still have 2 in our unit that were fully remote before Covid & continue to be fully remote & state they will not work in the office. Maybe I misunderstood but I got the impression they were doing away with this & requiring everyone to work in the office at least 3 days/week regardless if you were remote before the pandemic or not & if you refused, you would be let go? Is that no longer the case? Wondering how they decide it's ok for some but not for others? Really just curious if anyone has any insight on this topic?

Whether you think there’s a point of returning to the office or not, unless you were hired as a remote worker, you’re expected to be in the office (if that’s what your employer expects and wants). In all the PZ memos in the covid era, we all were returning to the office, at some point in time. It was always a matter of not if but when but “No one will be required to return to the office if they have concerns about their health or how their families may be impacted.” So go to the doctor, find a medical condition & roll the dice.

4ooy+1pUduMbt ~ lawyers cannot wait to sue AIG on behalf of employees fired for job abandonment when they’ve been doing their job effectively throughout covid. Inconsistent policy communication and enforcement ensures AIG will lose in court.
I have returned to office and am fine with it, other folks have extenuating circumstances that merit consideration, but just my thoughts.

Most of the fanboy posters are remote. Lawsuits will result if no severance given, precedents have already ruled against companies who fire for cause. These folks will end up getting packaged out, not fired for cause.

Currently honoring the remote designation set up officially (meaning HR approval) prior or during Covid or where there is no local office due to L&R separation but all new remote require PZ approval which isn’t happening even for some really gut wrenching personal situations. Have heard PZ in the new year will cut people if they aren’t coming in with no severance as it will be considered job abandonment. Happy Holidays!

If you think your employer is going to allow you to work from the beach forever…

AIG will not.

Start working on another plan NOW.

If It's convenient for AIG, they don't care..but apparently Peter Zaffino wants to authorize every single one of them . WFH is the way, you can't change this, Peter can only made up his mind or be preparer to pay (much much) more compensate the workers for the hassle

I think this is case by case situation and also department by department situation. If you're a client facing individual then there's no point of coming in or you're in the field. There were always remote positions and that's how they got hired in the first place. Makes no sense for them to come in
