As part of our commitment to health and safety, WeWork - like a growing number of employers - is requiring all U.S. employees to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 as a condition of employment, absent a legal exception for reasonable accommodation.

Please note that roles that require in-person work - currently, within our Community (excluding Member Experience), Facilities Management (including Security), Sales (excluding Sales Ops), and Member Technology teams - will not be eligible for work-from-home as an accommodation because it poses an undue hardship on our business.
