In August 2017, the Church released a statement saying he had been released from his position and excommunicated. The Church did not specify the reasons for this action but emphasized that it was not for reasons of apostasy or disillusionment.
I think members who work for the church and find themselves at odds with leaders will eventually find themselves facing some form of church discipline. The church really doesn't want articulate people to decide what their role is within the LDS organization. There is a handbook which outlines what they expect. Any deviation will result in a consequence.
