Google shunned white, Asian men, lawsuit asserts

Cyclist rides past Google sign

The plaintiff in the lawsuit is former Google employee Arne Wilberg, who worked for Youtube's parent company for nine years and as a human resources recruiter for Youtube for four years.

The lawsuit also claimed that Google "discriminated against employees for their perceived conservative political views", as well as their "Caucasian race" and "male gender".

Google says they will fight the lawsuit and their hiring processes favour the merit of the candidates over their identities. "At the same time, we unapologetically try to find a diverse pool of qualified candidates for open roles, as this helps us hire the best people, improve our culture, and build better products".

"In response to Wilberg's complaints and warnings Google would occasionally circulate e-mails instructing its employees (to) purge any and all references to the race/gender quotas from its e-mail database ... to wipe out any paper trail of Google's illegal practices", according to his lawsuit.

The lawsuit has been filed in state court in Redwood City, California, and the case is Wilberg v. Google 18-CIV-00442, California Superior Court, San Mateo County (Redwood City).

In January, James Damore, the engineer who was sacked after writing a screed against Google's diversity efforts, filed a lawsuit alleging discrimination against white people, men, and political conservatives. Google launched an investigation into YouTube's hiring practices in 2016, but recruiting managers allegedly tried to cover up the practices in question, including asking recruiters to delete emails and references to tracking a candidate's diversity status.

The conflagration briefly engulfed Google's own offices, turning the workspace into a polarized war zone.

One person, referring to the initiative, reportedly "complained that managers were speaking about blacks like they were objects".

During the March 30, 2017 TGIF meeting, either Porat or Naughton pointed out and shamed individual departments at Google in which women comprised less than 50% of the workforce.

In January a woman named Heidi Lamar sued the company on charges that women working as preschool teachers in Google's child care center were paid lower salaries than male counterparts who had fewer qualifications.

Lawsuits against the Silicon Valley companies are on the rise as ex-employees come out to speak about the harmful and discriminatory culture prevailing at some of the biggest organizations.
