Meta Employees Will Face Termination for Not Complying With “In-Person Time Policy”

Facebook and Instagram’s parent company Meta is taking a hard stance on remote working. The company recently told employees that a new “in-person time policy” will be put in place in September, and those that don’t comply with it may face disciplinary actions, including “termination”.

According to the memo obtained by Insider, Meta employees will be required to work in the office at least three days a week starting from September 5. The policy won’t affect workers that receive exemptions from the management or were hired for fully remote positions.

The company also warned employees that refusal to follow the “in-person time policy” could lead to job loss or negatively impact an individual’s performance review. On the flip side, fully remote workers will have limited access to the office, being able to come in for a maximum of four days in a span of two months.

“In the near-term, our in-person focus is designed to support a strong, valuable experience for our people who have chosen to work from the office, and we’re being thoughtful and intentional about where we invest in remote work,”  Meta spokesperson told Fortune when reached for comment.

Meta’s “in-person time policy” comes as a surprise, considering that the company was at the forefront of the remote work shift during the pandemic days. Several other big tech companies, including Apple and Google, have also been making a push to get employees back to the office.
