I've been fortunate to work from home since May. Now that that 2021 is almost here, management decided to reopen the office as of January. I don't feel safe as I work in a corporate office with more than 500 people in an open-concept layout.
To make matters worse, they did a soft open for 50 employees a few weeks ago and within a week, four tested positive from different sections of the office.
We have an ultimatum to either return as of January or you'll be let go. If it's deemed unsafe by the state's standards, can your workplace (unless your considered essential workers) force you to return? I'd appreciate your advice as I only have two weeks to decide.
