According to news in the morning of January 26, Beijing time, Apple is about to adjust the company's internal policy to deal with the novel coronavirus epidemic, including no longer requiring employees to be tested before entering the office.
Apple's response to the novel coronavirus outbreak in 2021 included encouraging employees to be vaccinated and stepping up testing. In March 2022, as the epidemic eased, Apple lifted the mandatory mask requirement for employees in offices and retail stores.
According to the latest news, from January 30, Apple will no longer force employees to take tests before going to work. At the same time, Apple will cancel its special sick leave policy for the novel coronavirus epidemic. Previously, under the policy, employees with symptoms could take sick leave indefinitely.
Related sick leave benefits will end in August 2023. Prior to this, if the employee tested positive for novel coronavirus, he or she could ask for sick leave for up to 5 days.
In 2022, Apple increased benefits for U. S. retail employees, including more sick leave and paid leave to attract and retain retail employees. Apple also offered a pay rise for retail employees.
As a result of the policy change, Apple may rehost the Global developer Conference (WWDC) and other traditional events offline. Since 2020, Apple has moved these activities online in response to the novel coronavirus epidemic.
