(Update of the CEO, information on plans of other banks will be added)

January 3 () – Jefferies Financial Group, an investment bank in the U.S., asked employees to work remotely until Jan. 31, according to a post on Instagram by Richard Handler, chief executive officer.

The bank had called its staff to its offices in October, but was forced to return to work from home in December due to an increase in COVID-19 cases. He also re-established the mask mandate in his offices, regardless of vaccination status.

Handler also said the bank will not hold closed group events or other functions, and believes it should only be “the most important business trip”.

As concerns about the Omicron variant of the coronavirus grew, Wall Street banks, which were aggressive in returning employees to offices, were forced to reconsider their plans.

On Sunday, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. also said it would encourage deserving U.S. employees to work from home until Jan. 18.
