Scotiabank Headquarters Employees to Work From Home Until 2021

  • Some capital-markets, critical workers said to return earlier
  • ‘We continue to assess the situation,’ spokesman says

Bank of Nova Scotia is planning to keep most of its headquarters employees working from home for the rest of the year amid efforts to stop the spread of Covid-19.

Scotiabank will let a small number of head-office employees return earlier, mostly in its capital-markets division and those in critical roles at the Toronto-based bank, according to people with knowledge of the plans, citing directives from an internal memo. The remainder wouldn’t be expected back until next year.
