Epic Systems has told its employees they will not be required to return to in-person work on Monday at the healthcare records company based in Wisconsin.
The company had planned to start a phased approach to bringing employees into work. Wisconsin Public Radio reports the company informed its employees they changed that plan after Public Health Madison and Dane County questioned whether they would comply with guidance on preventing coronavirus infections.
Epic employs about 10,000 people, and about 4,200 had already returned last week to its campus located in Verona.
Some employees had pushed back against Epic’s plan for them to return to working at its facility. The company is now allowing employees to opt out of the return.
