Apple is asking its employees in the United States to share their vaccination status. With this, the tech company is taking the next step in its Covid-19 policy, as the group does not require employees to be vaccinated.
The iPhone maker asked employees in a memo to voluntarily disclose their status before mid-September, whether they were working remotely or from the office. The company says it will use the data to improve its Corona protocols. Apple previously required employees in several states in the United States for this data to comply with local regulations.
Unlike a number of other companies in the tech sector, Apple employees are not required to vaccinate. But the company is getting stricter in encouraging employees. Apple recently launched a campaign to encourage employees to get vaccinated.
Apple has told its employees that it will keep vaccination data “confidential and secure” by pooling information and not disclosing managers’ comments. However, the company said that this situation may change in the future.
Return has been postponed
The tech company will eventually require all HQ staff to return to the office. This plan was postponed several times. The company informed employees that they know where they are a month in advance. It won’t be back to the office before January.
