Will NJ workers be ordered back to the office this fall?

September 14, 2022

As we head into the fall season, will your boss insist you come back to the office instead of working from home?

According to Carl Van Horn, the director of the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University, this will depend on what kind of job you have and what sector you work in.

“For jobs that are in very high demand and that can be done remotely employers are likely to be flexible, but if they think they can find another worker who will come into the office then they’re going to insist they come in,” he said.

“Clearly people that are in service-oriented businesses, customer-facing jobs where you more or less have to be there, or they want them to be there, they’re going to try to get them back into the office.”
