"We were concerned that these requests went beyond the scope of what was relevant to this specific audit, and posed unnecessary risks to employees' privacy", she said.
In a blog post Sunday, Google's VP of People Operations, Eileen Naughton, reiterated that Google's internal analysis "shows no gender pay gap" (methodology here) and the company has already provided over 329,000 documents and 1.7 million-plus data points as part of the investigation.
A judge handed Google a victory in its spat with the US Department of Labor over employee salary data.
An administrative law judge on Friday denied the federal government's request for 19 years of pay data on 21,000 Google employees, ruling the inquiry is overly broad and intrusive of employee privacy.
The OFCCP was also requesting contact info for all Google's 25,000 or so employees (from either the 2014 or 2015 snapshot) so that it could get a selection of workers' views on compensation.
The government now has one week to appeal the ruling, following which it will be finalized and Google will provide a more limited set of data.

A federal court in California moved on Friday to spare Google from turning over a trove of information about its employees to the US government as the feds continue to investigate whether the tech giant underpays its female workers.
"Anyone alive today likely is aware of data breaches surrounding this country's most recent Presidential election", he wrote. The same has occurred at other government agencies and private businesses.
Nor is Google required to provide salary history and job history for its employees dating back to their hiring. "This Office (OALJ) has been hacked".
A spokesman did not immediately respond when asked to comment. The company's lawyers argued last month the Labor Department might have violated ethics rules by talking to the press about the federal investigation.
"Over the a year ago, in connection with this audit alone, we've provided more than 329,000 documents and more than 1.7 million data points, including detailed compensation information, in response to [Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs'] 18 different data requests", Naughton wrote in a blog post. "Contractors will be held to their promise to let [DoL] fully audit their employment practices", said Janet Herold, the department's regional solicitor.
Critics of Silicon Valley have drawn fierce attention to its lack of diversity and its tendency to marginalize minorities and women, at times highlighting cases of unwanted sexual advances from male co-workers or refusals by management to address toxic workplace culture problems.
