An industry group representing tech giants such as Apple, Google and Facebook noted tech companies' contributions to battling the pandemic and said the move will hinder companies' ability to make workforce decisions.

"The technology industry is working overtime to keep Americans connected during a global pandemic by providing food delivery services, tele-healthcare, collaborative business solutions, and ways for families and friends to stay connected," TechNet CEO Linda Moore said in a statement.

"This will slow innovation and undermine the work the technology industry is doing to help our country recover from unprecedented events," Moore said. "Looking forward, technology will continue to be crucial to the rebuilding of our economy."
