I'd assume so, same as until today (re procedures to allow wfh in the companies that have been doing that): proper office arrangements, with desk cabinets and stuff, proper broadband (so many are complaining their broadband is not good enough - then imo wfh is not ok)
And, as someone said on other thread, ppl may need to prove childcare arrangements too (thank god I am out of that pool now) ...
Some disruption it is, with winners and losers ...
- But I would be interested in the opportunities it uncovers. Might get the Dublin salary while working from my mortgaged house in Midlands, or even for cheaper in eastern europe
