James Damore sues Google for discrimination against conservative white men

James Damore sues Google for discrimination against conservative white men

She was on President Donald Trump's shortlist to lead the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division in March, before the president ended up nominating a different attorney, according to press reports.

Damore is being represented by the Dhillon Law Group and has teamed up on the suit with another former Google employee, software engineer David Gudeman, who says he was wrongfully terminated.

A Google spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.

Many companies in the tech world including Facebook, Tesla, Uber and Google have come under fire for discrimination and sexual harassment.

The imbroglio at Google is the latest in a long string of incidents concerning gender bias and diversity in the tech enclave. In doing so, Damore also painted gross generalizations against women, accusing them of being more neurotic and anxiety-ridden, and he believes these supposed traits render women unsuitable for the stress of higher-level tech jobs. He finds fault in company executives like Ruth Porat, for example, the chief financial officer of Google.

GDP growth at 6.5 pc for FY 2017-18
It had grown 5.7 per cent in the first three months of the current financial year and 6.3 per cent in the second quarter. Manufacturing: Manufacturing is likely to decelerate sharply to grow at 4.6%, compared with 7.9% a year ago.


The exhibits in Damore's suit include several emails sent to him by other Google employees. In that missive, Damore criticized Google for pushing mentoring and diversity programs and for "alienating conservatives".

This newspaper reached out to Google and this post will be updated. "Google has engaged in some shocking activities in my opinion". Earlier this month, four women plaintiffs as part of a revised lawsuit, alleged that the company had asked for their prior salaries and had underpaid them compared to their male counterparts. Specifically, he said, the gender pay gap "doesn't necessarily imply sexism".

The lawsuit also accused Google of maintaining a secret blacklist of conservative media personalities who are not allowed inside the company's offices. The data show that 56% of Google's workforce and 53% of its technical staff are white.

A class-action suit filed Monday in Santa Clara Superior Court in California alleges that Google's management "goes to extreme - and illegal - lengths to encourage hiring managers to take protected categories such as race and/or gender into consideration as determinative hiring factors, to the detriment of Caucasian and male employees and potential employees".
