Netflix employees drop labor complaints, one resigns after Dave Chappell special


LOS ANGELES – Two former Netflix employees who criticized Dave Chappell’s anti-transgender comments on a TV special have dropped a labor complaint and one has resigned, it was announced Monday.

Terra Field, a senior software engineer at Trans, announced that Field had voluntarily resigned as of Sunday.

“I don’t think that’s how things will end, but I’m comforted by the closure,” Field said in a resignation post posted online.

Chappell’s “The Closer” first aired on October 1 and garnered millions of views. However, Chappell’s derogatory remarks about the transgender community have sparked protests on Netflix and by activists. About 30 Netflix workers held a walkout on October 20 and joined the Netflix offices in Los Angeles.

The company suspended the field after a senior executives business meeting but was quickly reinstated.

Field and B. Pagels-Minor, Game Launch Operations Program Manager, who is a trans, has filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board. He accused Netflix of retaliating against workers for not talking about working conditions, including “the impact of Netflix’s products and its product choices on the LGBTQ + community.”

Netflix said in a statement Monday that “we have resolved our differences in a way that both sides agree to erode trust and allow everyone to move forward.”

Pagles-Minor has admitted that Netflix was fired last month on charges of revealing confidential financial information about its payment to “The Closer.” This information was cited in a LOVEBYLIFE News article.

Pagels-Minor has denied the allegations.

Netflix has come under the buzz of criticism over how internal memos have responded to employee concerns, including co-CEO Ted Sarandos’s assertion that “screen content doesn’t directly translate to real-world damage.”

“Netflix does not allow titles designed to incite hatred or violence and we do not believe ‘The Closer’ crosses that line,” wrote Sarandos.

Netflix continues to make the specials available for streaming.
