Terra Field, the Netflix employee who organized protests against comedian Dave Chapelle, has announced on Monday that she is resigning from the company.

She and her ex co-worker B. Pagels Minor have also both withdrawn a legal action they filed in Oct. 2021 against the streaming giant for unfair labor practices.

According to NBC News, Laurie Burgess, a lawyer representing both Field and Pagels-Minor, stated, "My clients have resolved their differences with Netflix and will be voluntarily withdrawing their NLRB charge."

A Netflix spokesperson released a similar statement, saying that all parties "have resolved our differences in a way that acknowledges the erosion of trust on both sides and, we hope, enables everyone to move on."

Field was suspended because of her crashing a director-level meeting to which she was not asked to come to, although Netflix later lifted that suspension, considering that she was acting based on her conscience, and not out of ill intent.

Pagels-Minor, who, like Field, is trans, was fired from Netflix previously, with the reason given for the firing being the divulging of confidential information. Pagels-minor denies that this was the case, and that Netflix was de facto punishing her for organizing an employee walkout.

Both former employees were upset about Netflix's airing of the latest comedy special by star comedian Dave Chapelle, calling the show and Chapelle "transphobic."
