Work From Home Perks Are Happening More And More

A high court in Switzerland has ruled that companies have to pay a portion of their employees' rent each month while they're required to work from home. According to reports, the judges estimated a monthly payment of $154 for each employee, and even allowed the workers to get retroactive compensation. While no companies in the U.S. have done this so far, many have introduced their own perks. Google, for example, is giving their employees $1,000 to buy work-from-home essentials. "Because we still expect that most Googlers will be largely working from home for the rest of this year, we'll be giving each Googler an allowance of $1,000 USD, or the equivalent value in your country, to expense necessary equipment and office furniture," CEO Sundar Pichaisaid in a statement. (Thrillist)
