James Damore, the former Google engineer who was sacked for writing a memo suggesting men were better suited than women for certain tech jobs, is suing the company for allegedly discriminating against white, conservative men.
Damore was sacked five months ago after writing a 3,000-word memo that included the sentence: "I'm simply stating that the distribution of 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". Damore was quickly fired.
The lawsuit, filed Monday by Mr. Damore and another former Google employee with California Superior Court of Santa Clara County, also claims that the company uses illegal quotas in order to hire women and minorities.
"When plaintiffs challenged Google's illegal employment practices, they were openly threatened and subjected to harassment and retaliation from Google".
However, Pichai defended the author's right to criticize Google training, workplace ideology and whether programs promoting workplace diversity are adequately open to all. Meanwhile, Google's HR department allegedly accused a conservative employee of "inciting violence" after he stated that he would teach traditional gender roles to his children.
When asked if he would want to be reinstated at Google, Damore said he would welcome the chance to return and felt he could help improve the culture there.
It alleges that Google singles out and punish employees like Damore who expressed views that don't align with how the majority of employees at the tech firm feel about politics and diversity efforts. Google denied those claims to NBC News.
