Google Sued Over Bias Against 'Conservative White Men'

Posted January 09, 2018

Damore's fellow plaintiff in the class action is another Google employee, a former software engineer named David Gudeman.

But Damore's complaint appears to focus on how hard it is to be a white man in a primarily white and largely male-dominated field and goes after Google for discrimination against being male or Caucasian and its "open hostility for conservative thought".

James Damore, the former Google engineer who was sacked after distributing a memo questioning the company's diversity policies, filed a class action lawsuit on Monday claiming racial discrimination by the technology giant.

Last March, Letterman told New York Magazine that he "would have gone to work on Trump" if he was still a late night host. These segments will allow him to "dig deeper" into topics related to the guest featured in the episode.

Google did not immediately reply to a Law&Crime request for comment.

The imbroglio at Google is the latest in a long string of incidents concerning gender bias and diversity in the tech enclave. Those violations include wrongful termination, workplace harassment, workplace discrimination, retaliation failure to prevent harassment, discrimination and retaliation, and unfair business practices, amongst others. The filing says the lawsuit is also meant to represent other Google workers who have allegedly been discriminated against in a similar way to Damore and Gudeman. It circulated widely inside the company and became public over the first weekend in August, causing a furor that amplified the pressure on Google executives to take a more definitive stand.

When James Damore lost his job, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said portions of the memo violated the company's code of conduct and crossed "the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace". Damore filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board alleging that his employer interfered with his right to engage in protected activities.

Commenting on the launch of this newer varian of the OnePlus 5T, the Chinese company discussed about its manufacturing process. The OnePlus 5T Sandstone White will only come in the 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage configuration.

Echoing Damore's initial blog post, the suit also accuses Google of "producing an ideological echo chamber" and "a protected, distorted bubble of groupthink" where political correctness was elevated over merit.

The firing has placed the company into the center of a maelstrom of political controversy. "We'll continue to stand for that and be committed to it for the long haul".

He claims he was "chastised for attempting to stand up for Caucasian males and his conservative views" by Google's HR department. Google has denied the allegations, arguing that it doesn't have a gender gap in pay. The company is 69% male and 56% white, although Google does not report how many describe themselves as "conservative".
