Apple this week informed employees that they have a right to discuss wages and pay-related complaints externally, but the company faces mounting pressure over its employee policies, including a recently filed Securities and Exchange Commission complaint.
Staff in the U.S. were made aware
of their express rights in a memo posted to Apple’s people site, reports NBC News
. The memo marks a noted shift in policy for a company that has over the past months worked to tamp down attempts to organize over similar matters.”Our policies do not restrict employees from speaking freely about their wages, hours, or working conditions,” the memo reads, according to the report. “We encourage any employee with concerns to raise them in the way they feel most comfortable, internally or externally, including through their manager, any Apple manager, People Support, People Business Partner, or Business Conduct.”
