A project manager at Apple who co-founded a protest movement against the company has been fired for 'non compliance'.

Janneke Parrish, a program manager for Apple Maps based in Austin, Texas, was one of two employees of the company to create a forum for complaints.

On Thursday she was fired, with Apple blaming her dismissal on her deleting some apps from her work phone.

Parrish, 30, was certain that her firing was a consequence of her leading the dissent.

'There are consequences for speaking out. There are consequences for doing the right thing,' she tweeted on Friday.

'But we do the right thing because it is the right thing to do. #AppleToo is about asking Apple to do better, to end systemic discrimination, abuse, and pay inequity.

'Do the right thing.'

Parrish said an Apple lawyer and a human resources worker told her on a phone call on Thursday that she was being fired.

They said it was because she had deleted files from her company computer and phone before handing them over to be examined, but she said the apps and documents contained personal and financial information that she didn't want to share.

She told The New York Times she had deleted screenshots of things like programming bugs she was working to fix.

She said she also deleted the Robinhood stock trading app because she did not want Apple to see 'how much money I lost investing in GameStop' and the Pokemon Go gaming app because 'I feel a little embarrassed I played Pokemon Go.'

Parrish said she was investigated because company officials thought she had leaked a recording of an Apple staff
