Google approved 85% of around 10,000 employee requests to work remotely or relocate when the search giant’s offices fully re-open, Bloomberg reported Tuesday. It comes after some workers criticized the company’s remote work policies as “hypocritical” due to a senior executive moving to New Zealand.

Employees who needed to use particular equipment or interact with customers face-to-face had their applications rejected, according to Bloomberg, which cited an emailed from Google’s HR chief to staff.

Last week, the company pushed its mandatory return to office date from September to Oct. 18.

Google didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
