The report will push Apple’s return to office date to October earliest and comes as deadly Covid-19 variants spread nationwide.
Apple refrained from responding to any requests for comments on the report.
CEO Mr. Tim Cook sent out an email the previous month asking employees to return to the office on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, with the option to work remotely for up to two weeks a year, The Verge reported.
The move brought significant pushback from several employees, with some calling the plan a move that has “forced some of our colleagues to quit.”
Apple plan is one of the strictest return-to-work policies among Big Tech companies. Microsoft announced it would allow employees to work from home half the time, while Facebook CEO Mr. Mark Zuckerberg said that full-time employees could work from home last month if apple employee can do their jobs remotely. Both Twitter and Spotify have touted permanent work-from-home policies.
