Even something as personal as “explicit” images of her. She says those files are in Apple’s possession in their “permanent evidence locker”

When I started to raise workplace safety issues in March, I faced retaliation and intimidation almost immediately. I started to prepare for such a thing to happen.” Gjøvik said, “I was disappointed they treat their employees like this.”

In early August Apple started to investigate this issue, and Ashley was forced to take administrative leave from the company. Finally today, she was contacted by the Team. Ashley replied to the e-mail saying she would like all the conversations to be via E-mail so that everything is written.
