Blowing the whistle on Apple
On this episode of The Whistleblowers, John Kiriakou speaks with someone who blew the whistle on the biggest company in the world. When the bottom line is profits, nearly every company will cut corners. But sometimes they will do it at a cost to the health and safety of their workers and to the public’s privacy. And for a whistleblower, that’s just not going to work. Ashley Gjovik, a former senior engineering program manager at Apple, documented and exposed unsafe work conditions, disturbing surveillance and intimidation practices, and systemic malfeasance at Apple Inc. After facing increasing retaliation in response to her attempts to escalate her concerns internally, she took her complaints to regulators, the press, and the public.
