James Damore'slawsuit says the company's "open hostility for conservative thought is paired with invidious discrimination on the basis of race and gender" - that is, Caucasian and male.
A lawsuit filed against Google by fired developer James Damore accuses the tech giant of various instances in which conservatives and white men were discriminated against while he was with the company. "This included employment and business-related topics such as "'diversity" hiring policies, "bias sensitivity" or "social justice.'" The lawsuit also alleges that Google uses illegal hiring quotas in order to fill positions with female and minority candidates.
The suit claims white men were booed at company-wide meetings: "Not only was the numerical presence of women celebrated at Google exclusively due to their gender, but the presence of Caucasians and males was mocked with "boos" during company-wide weekly meetings". This unacceptable behavior occurred at the hands of high-level managers at Google who were responsible for hundreds, if not thousands, of hiring and firing decisions...
Many companies in the tech world including Facebook, Tesla, Uber and Google have come under fire for discrimination and sexual harassment.
Google fired Damore in August after he distributed a 3,000-word missive arguing that the "preferences and abilities of men and women differ in part due to biological causes and that these differences may explain why we don't see equal representation of women in tech and leadership".
In a lengthy memo that went viral in August, Damore had argued against Google's "echo chamber" of liberal ideas. The company's CEO, Sundar Pichai, told Bloomberg that Damore "violate [d] our Code of Conduct and cross [ed] the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace".
