Cher Scarlett, a software engineer who became the face of a public opposition group, announced on Thursday that she was leaving the company over the weekend.
Scarlett is part of an attack movement called #AppleToo, created to change Apple’s culture.
“Friday is my last day at Apple,” Scarlett said in a tweet on Thursday, adding that he would take some time to decide what to do next.
The high-level software engineer tried to set up an internal employee compensation investigation, published employee complaints and helped write an open letter to CEO Tim Cook criticizing work conditions.
Scarlett was one of two Apple employees who filed a lawsuit against the company in September, alleging misconduct, including a claim that the administration “played a role and caused havoc that led to abuse and harassment ”organized by staff.
Scarlett’s departure comes after reaching an agreement with Apple, according to a report by Bloomberg.
The complaints come as technology giants have faced a wave of employee incompetence in recent months. In August, officials criticized Apple’s move to scan US customers’ iPhones and computers for images of child sexual abuse, worrying that it could lead to harassment or arrest by angry governments. In July, workers began circulating petitions inside the press for more flexible working conditions as the company began firing return-to-work police after lock-in.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
