Corona in Germany, government declares end of the obligation to work remotely

Corona: Germany will not extend the obligation to work remotely after June 30th. This comes as another step towards the country’s return to normalcy after months of the coronavirus restrictions.

The law had made work places to oblige to let employees work remotely or from home during the time period when cases of corona in Germany were high.

The decision has been justified by the state of falling cases of the coronavirus infections in the country, commented the head of the Federal Chancellor’s Office Helge Braun in WirtschaftsWoche weekly.

The failure to extend the obligation to work remotely is another step by the German government towards returning the country to normal after months of restrictions and lockdowns.
