CNN - Grindr implemented a return-to-office mandate, leading to nearly half of its employees leaving the company. The policy required workers to either relocate to designated "hub" cities for in-person work or resign with severance. ~80 out of 178 employees chose to leave, citing the policy as retaliatory against a recent unionization effort. Many of these workers were hired remotely. The Communication Workers of America (CWA) filed an unfair labor practice charge against Grindr, which the company disputes. Amazon CEO Andy Jassy allowed employees to voice disagreement with the three-days-a-week office policy but warned of potential consequences for non-compliance. Similarly, Meta required employees already assigned to an office to attend three days a week, with noncompliance potentially leading to disciplinary measures or dismissal.
