A member of Apple’s employee relations team reached out to Gjøvik saying the company was looking into a sensitive intellectual property matter and wanted to speak to her within the hour.

Hours later, Gjøvik received an email that her employment at Apple was being terminated, effective tomorrow.

In reaction to these allegations, an Apple spokesman told The Verge that the company “has always been committed to creating and maintaining a positive and inclusive work environment.”
