Employees at Multiple City Agencies Shift to Hybrid Work Schedules

Despite an earlier hard stance against remote work, Mayor Eric Adams now follows in the footsteps of several other employers and recently eased the work schedule policy amid union contract negotiations. Affecting at least 30 agencies over the next two years, city employees can work remotely two days a week. While fewer in-person workers in the city’s central business district will further challenge the office and retail markets, it may benefit the city’s ability to fill job vacancies that have increased to a rate of at least 20% in seven agencies according to a March analysis from the City Comptroller’s Office.
