On October 14th, Apple fired a leader of the #AppleToo
movement for allegedly failing to comply with an internal
investigation. The employee, Janneke Parrish, has been working
behind the scenes for months to organize fellow employees who’ve
faced harassment and discrimination. […]
Q: What’s your view on why you were fired?
I believe I was fired in retaliation for speaking out, for my work
with #AppleToo, and out of concern that I was organizing to help
other employees tell their stories. In my view, this is entirely
retaliation for trying to bring Apple’s actions to light and
publicly asking the company to do better.
Unasked in the interview: whether Parrish actually leaked confidential company information. That seems pertinent when the stated reason for her firing was suspicion of leaking confidential company information.
