Under the Covid-19 situation, various organizations around the world have made it normal to work from home. Many multinational companies have recognized employees working permanently from home.
However, Google is going to make a big decision to reduce the salaries of the employees who are working from home. News agency Reuters reported the news.
According to Reuters, Google has decided that those employees who choose to work from home will have their pay cuts. The IT company has prepared a special calculator for this.
The salary structure will be determined based on the cost of living in the area where the workers live. Suppose an employee’s office is in Uttara, Dhaka. And, the worker’s home is in Tejgaon.
Naturally, the cost of living in the Tejgaon area is not the same as the cost of living of old Dhaka residents working in the same company in the same position. Google says the pay scale will be determined based on such living standards.
However, a Google official said that the salaries of the employees of his company are determined based on the area of residence, the standard of living there, etc. He also claimed that Google pays the best salary to the employees by that standard.
According to Reuters, many employees are leaving work from home and going to office after Google’s decision to reduce the salary. However, there is no spontaneity between them. Reuters also claimed that some employees were angry.
