James Damore'sclass action lawsuit, filed January 8 with the Santa Clara Superior Court in California, alleges that employees who fit that description were "singled out, mistreated, and systematically punished and terminated from Google".
They say they were "ostracized, belittled, and punished. for the added sin of their birth circumstances of being Caucasians and/or males".
"(Google applies) illegal hiring quotas to fill its desired percentages of women and favored minority candidates, and openly shames managers of business units who fail to meet their quotas-in the process, openly denigrating male and Caucasian employees as less favored than others."
Google fired Damore in August after the engineer circulated his memo, addressing what he deemed to be an "ideological echo chamber" at the company.
According to the complaint, this was an open display of "disregard for the law" and discrimination against Caucasians that was "not only allowed at Google, but supported and actively encouraged".
Former Google engineer, James Damore, is suing Google for discrimination. Last month Google scored a win in the lawsuit when a California state judge dismissed class action claims.
Harvey Weinstein gets slapped at resort in Arizona
Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein went to eat at a restaurant in Arizona and was assaulted by one of the diners. Over the past few months, over 60 women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Harvey Weinstein .
The lawsuit is seeking compensation against Google and an injunction against the company for its alleged discrimination.
Google said it looks forward to defending itself against Damore's accusations in court.
Damore was sacked for "perpetuating gender stereotypes". "To suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive and not OK", wrote CEO Sundar Pichai in an internal memo announcing Damore's departure.
The company has never given any indication that it fired Damore for his political views. The four women claimed Google underpaid them compared with their male counterparts. It's not a totally surprising filing given Damore filed a federal labor complaint past year and began working with Dhillon during August 2017 on "fact gathering" - looking for other white dudes who felt wronged by Google - for what would eventually become today's complaint. The class action suit is also demanding for a jury trial.
