WHAT WE’RE WATCHING
OFFICES ARE OVERRATED - Even though COVID-19 is still spreading around the globe, some law firms are mapping out their post-pandemic work arrangements. As part of its “Work Smart Plus” policy, DLA Piper has moved to allow its non-U.S. employees—including partners—to work two days per week away from the office, subject to their manager’s approval, Simon Lock reports. The updated policy, which took into account lessons learned from the pandemic, won’t come into effect until after the health crisis subsides. DLA Piper, however, isn’t the only firm that’s settled on its remote work future. In August, Linklaters enacted a policy allowing all its global employees to work remotely for up to 20-50% of their time. Many other firms, such as Slaughter and May and Davis Wright Tremaine are currently reviewing their flexible work policies as well.
