If, as of the intended May 2021 start date of the 2021 program, SAP’s work from home guidance is still in effect, participation in the program will be on a virtual basis from your current home address until further SAP guidance is provided. However, in ordinary circumstances, a portion of the program requires travel to SAP’s San Ramon, CA office. If SAP’s COVID-19 work from home guidance concludes, we intend to conduct a portion of the program in San Ramon, CA and travel therefore would be required in order to continue in the program. You will be provided with up to 4-weeks’ notice. If you are unable for any reason to travel to San Ramon, CA once notified of the in-person program intent, your participation in the program may be discontinued and your associated employment ended, and thereafter SAP will have no further obligation to you.
