So my sim got back from work, but the work icon didn't change back. I can't see the needs etc. I already tried to reset him, but it didn't remove the at work icon. How can I fix this?

    Try taking another sim to another lot, click on the glitched sim's icon and click to go home. That should fix it.

    I would only try the last bit if you really have to but plop all of the stuff in their inventory on the home lot and save a copy of it. Don't think there's much to do about the relationships though.

    @thegreenlion Yea I tried everything.. And I don't want to start all over with their relationships and carreers. :#

    Yep I have this issue too. Thankfully it's with a sim I really don't care for much anyways. I've done the "leave early" action but you have to do it every day so it's not really a solution. I thought it was going great but then he got FIRED. Even though he did all of his assignments and was doing well at his job. After that I was like "sc.rew this" and abandoned him. He can take care of himself...I hope they're working on this =/

    Also maybe try saving and quitting/reloading if that hasn't already made it to your list of stuff to try.

    @jeanbaby4 Leaving work early doesn't work, I do get paid every time I use this interaction (I even got a promotion after a few times).
    @babisko Already tried manage worlds..
    @thegreenlion currently restarting the game again from another lot :)

    Restarting the game from another lot fixed the problem. Thanks for the help :)

    But it does work for me. Well..I mean work in the sense that it solves the problem temporarily.
    Try the other alternatives. Crinrict made a post about this with solutions in his/her bugthread. There were a couple of other solutions there too.

    EDIT: Here's the link to that btw. In case you want to try. http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4-Bug-Reports/Common-Sims-Icons-staying-grey-after-coming-back-from-work/m-p/3446165

    Random question, does your sim have the noncommittal trait?

    I was having the same issue as this, all I did was have the Sim that was supposedly still at work, travel to another lot and that seemed to have fixed the problem.
