Apple is suing Gerard Wiliams, one of its former designers in the A-series processor segment. According to court documents, Apple claims that Williams created his own company with technology obtained during his time working at the company. Apple
The documents detail that Williams allegedly bragged to colleagues about setting up his company before leaving Apple. Supposedly Williams said his company would use technology that "Apple needs and will have no choice but to buy."
Williams's company is called Nuvia and focuses on semiconductor design, one of the components used in the manufacture of processors. The company has raised $ 53 million in funding and has other former Apple employees on its team.
Williams states that Apple has violated your privacy
In response to the accusations, Williams is now accusing Apple of invading his privacy and that of other company employees. The designer says the company monitors its employees' messages and call logs to deter them from leaving the company.
Williams is not the first former employee to sue the company
This is not the first time a former Apple employee has left the company negatively. In October, a former African-American employee at Apple's Washington store filed a lawsuit against Apple, alleging years of customer racism without any support from store managers.
The employee had been fired in March 2019 for breaking company policies that were not detailed. So far, the process is still going on without updates since then. The former employee claims $ 750,000 for the embarrassment caused.
