Citigroup mandates New York metro employees to remote work

Citigroup has imposed a mandatory work from home policy for employees based in downtown New York City, New Jersey, and Connecticut. 

"Beginning tomorrow, Monday, March 16, 2020 all New York City Metro (including CT, NJ, and downstate NY) staff who had previously been placed on weekly rotations are to work remotely until further notice," according to an internal memo sent to staff on Sunday afternoon and reviewed by The Block.

Last week, several of the largest investment banks, including Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, had reportedly planned to have their staff work from home on a rotational schedule to combat the coronavirus outbreak.
