That's a shitty position for them to put you in, "Sure, you can work from home, but you have to tell your staff they have to come into the office."

Just tell your staff to work from home. See what happens.

I've started encouraging discussion about the situation. But my manager is super not keen on allowing WFH, so it's kind of under the table at the moment. Kiwis are allowed to travel overseas now finally, so one staff member has flown to the USA for a month, and I said she could work from home in the build up - lest she get Covid and have to cancel the trip.

Sure enough my manager said no to working from home in the build up, so I told my staff she could do it anyway and we wouldn't tell anyone. She WFH, got on her flight and is enjoying herself. Nobody outside of our area knew and her work didn't alter in the slightest.
