Can the employer require me to share an enclosed office space if I choose a hybrid work option or take my office space away if I choose to telework full-time?

Yes, the employer can require you to share an enclosed office space if you choose a hybrid work option, or take away your office space if you choose to telework full-time. Shared office space would likely mean two lawyers using a shared office at different scheduled times. It continues to be our view that an enclosed office space is required for lawyers working in the workplace in order to meet professional responsibilities.

If you are concerned about sharing or losing your enclosed office space, please contact your regional GC Representative for advice and assistance or fill out our online intake form.
