An Apple program manager Janneke Parrish told the media that she was fired after she led colleagues in sharing their harassment instances at the company in the public. She said that the iPhone maker informed her that she has been terminated for deleting material on the company’s equipment during her investigation of leaking of the company town hall to media. She denied the leaking.
She admitted that she deleted apps that had her financial and personal details before she gave the device back to Apple as a part of the probe. Parrish thinks she was fired for her activism at work. She said, “To me, this seems clearly retaliatory for the fact that I was speaking out about abuses that have happened at my employer, pay equity, and, generally, about our workplace conditions.”
