Google sued by female ex-employees over pay discrimination

The suit alleges that Google segregates Women into lower paying jobs that curb progression, while men with equivalent qualifications face no such hurdles.

Last month, Google fired a male employee for circulating an internal memo that enforced "harmful" Gender stereotypes.

The controversial document, attacking Google's purported "ideological echo chamber," suggested that women had low representation in software engineering due to biological differences.

The latest suit cites the DoL's review of wage data for employees at the Mountain View company's headquarters.

Despite pouring millions into initiatives to broaden its workforce, its latest report on inclusion showed that women make up just 20 percent of its tech roles.
