One of the largest accounting firms in the world, Ernst & Young (EY) is asking its Australian employees to work from home from Wednesday onward to curb the coronavirus spread
The company, which employs almost 6000 people across its Oceania operations, sent text messages to employees saying they should work remotely for a 14-day period, ending March 31.
The move comes after fears a staff member became infected in EY’s Brisbane office.
It told staff working on a floor of its Eagle Street office to work from home “until further notice” after an employee reported flu-like symptoms on Wednesday.
The office is near Friday’s nightclub where a 22-year-old man, diagnosed last week with COVID-19, attended multiple times last weekend.
