Google in Trouble Again! Female Employee Files Lawsuit Against'Bro Culture That Encourages Sexual Harassment of Women

The lawsuit, filed in January in California's San Mateo County Superior Court, claims Wilberg was sacked by Google in retaliation for complaining to human resources about the company's hiring practices, the news agency reported.

A colleague showing up at Lee's apartment uninvited with a bottle of liquor offering to help fix one of her devices and refused to leave.

Loretta Lee, who spent seven years at Google before she as fired in 2016, accused the Californian company of sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and wrongful termination in a suit earlier this month. In one particularly alarming incident, Lee came back to her desk to find a "relatively unknown" male coworker hiding underneath.

The lawsuit, which was filed in late January in San Mateo Superior Court but wasn't reported in the media until Thursday, comes at a time when many Silicon Valley companies (including Google) are becoming increasingly cognizant of a largely male, white, and Asian workforce. Her colleagues would make lewd comments about her. The suit claims he popped out and said "You'll never know what I was doing!"

For Lee, all of these episodes combined to form a noxious "bro culture" at Google.

Even worse, Lee was in a auto accident shortly before her dismissal.

A day later, another co-worker allegedly toyed with her breasts in public, which then led to prolonged discussions with HR, but officials found the claims "unsubstantiated". She returned in November but was nearly immediately in a serious auto accident and needed more time out to recover. When she wanted time out for physical-therapy appointments, she said, a senior manager told her she had "better be doing that on [her] own time". "Google's failure to take appropriate remedial action is consistent with its pattern and practice of ignoring sexual harassment in the workplace, making no significant efforts to take corrective action, and punishing the victim". "Additionally, Google discriminated against Plaintiff on the basis of her disability, failed to accommodate her, retaliated against her, and terminated her". Lee accuses Google of having a problem with identifying and properly tackling sexual harassment in the workplace. In his job, Wilberg was tasked with helping to select engineering and tech talent for YouTube and Google. Damore's memo, which was published by Gizmodo in August, received both support and condemnation from other Google employees and spurred internal debate about sexism, racism, and diversity within the company. The messages, he said, included information about combatting harassment and white supremacy. "We take action when we find violations - including termination of employment".
