Google faces a lawsuit over discriminating against white men and conservatives

Google faces a lawsuit over discriminating against white men and conservatives

The lawsuit was filed in Santa Clara County Superior Court and comes five months after Google fired Damore for writing a 10-page memo entitled, "Google's Ideological Echo Chamber".

According to the lawsuit, people who "expressed views deviating from the majority view at Google on political subjects raised in the workplace and relevant to Google's employment policies and its business, such as "diversity" hiring policies, "bias sensitivity" or 'social justice, '" were targets.

This was followed by a tweet on UIDAI's official account: "UIDAI is committed to the freedom of Press". We at The Tribune believe that our stories were in the nature of a legitimate journalistic exercise.

Damore, 28, says he submitted early versions of his memo to Google's human resources department without being reprimanded.

Now he is suing his former employer for workplace discrimination, claiming that Google is biased against white men with conservative views.

Israel Bans 20 Organizations from Entry for Promoting Boycott of Country
The ministry said there is no intention to ban individuals who express political criticism of Israel nor those who hold Israeli citizenship.

Furthermore, Google discriminated against the plaintiffs by threatening to blacklist employees with conservative viewpoints and even allow harassment against those with viewpoints that ran against "liberal orthodoxy", according to the complaint. The suit alleges that Google's diversity efforts are unlawful, citing "illegal hiring quotas to fill its desired percentages of women and favored minority candidates" as an example. Damore, Gudeman, and other class members were ostracized, belittled, and punished for their heterodox political views, and for the added sin of their birth circumstances of being Caucasians and/or males.

Google terminated Gudeman in 2016 after he made comments suggesting a Muslim colleague had a link to terrorism.

During a press conference livestreamed on Facebook on Monday, she said employees at other big tech companies also contacted her firm. Unlike government employees, who have some free speech protections, private employees in the US have little legal recourse if companies choose to retaliate for things they say at work or at home. They claim they were discriminated against because they are both male and Caucasian, and Google's practices favor women and minorities. "We look forward to defending against Mr. Damore's lawsuit in court", a Google spokesperson said in a statement. Women at Google, Uber, Twitter Inc. and Microsoft Corp. are seeking class-action status in lawsuits accusing those companies of favoring men for promotions in engineering roles.
