Apple’s efforts to return its workers to the office are facing continuing resistance from an organized group of employees, and at least one prominent resignation has taken place over the issue.

The Verge reporter Zoë Schiffer tweeted on Saturday that Ian Goodfellow, a director of machine learning at Apple, will leave the company. He cited the return-to-office plan as a reason for his departure. “I believe strongly that more flexibility would have been the best policy for my team,” he said in a note to fellow staffers, according to Schiffer’s tweet.

The current policy occasionally varies by team and role, but generally, Apple has already asked employees to visit the office for one or two days a week. On May 23, many of Apple’s employees will be required to go to the office at least three days per week.
