Apple employees are outraged over a newly announced policy that would reduce their work-from-home time beginning in the fall, a report said.
Staff members began circulating a letter addressed to CEO Tim Cook on Friday criticizing the mandate, which requires them to return to work three days a week beginning in September, according to The Verge.
According to the outlet, the letter stated that Apple’s so-called “remote/location-flexible work policy,” and the manner in which it was communicated to employees, had “already forced some of our colleagues to resign.”
“Without the inclusivity that flexibility enables, many of us feel compelled to choose between our families, our well-being, and the ability to do our best work, or being a part of Apple,” the note read.
The move comes days after Cook sent an email to employees informing them that they would be required to report to work on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. The majority of employees would be permitted to work remotely twice a week.
Apple discouraged employees from working from home entirely prior to the coronavirus pandemic, the report stated.
