Apple Is Tracking Employees To Make Sure They Are In Office 3 Times A Week

Apple is reportedly tracking employees via their office badges to make sure that they’re actually working from an Apple campus. according to a new report.

It’s said that Apple is using records of badge swipes as a way of ensuring that people have worked in the office at least three times per week as is the requirement.

Apple told employees that they had to start working in the office at least three times per week as part of its post-pandemic plans.

Since April 2022 people have had to work in the office on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays but they’re allowed to work from elsewhere on Wednesdays and Fridays. It’s been suggested that Apple is now using badge records as a way to track if people have been in the office enough times and if not, using that as a way to cut costs.

While it isn’t thought to be a company-wide policy, some office staff have reportedly been told that not working in the office when required could mean losing their job. Platformer’s Zoë Schiffer reports that employees will receive “escalating warnings” if they don’t go into the office.

This news follows reports that Apple is trying to do everything it can to avoid laying people off at a time when other tech companies are firing thousands of employees.
