James Damore, the Google employee who was sacked after circulating an anti-diversity memo last August, isn't over his dismissal apparently as he has now filed a lawsuit against his former employer. However, Damore's attorneys are extra bold in their assertion that another he, along with former Google employee (David Gudeman) and unspecified others, have been wronged to the degree that a class-action lawsuit is warranted. The two men claim they were "ostracized, belittled and punished for their heterodox political views, and for the added sin of their birth circumstances of being Caucasians and/or males".
In August, Google CEO Sundar Pichaiwrote in a memo to employees that the tech firm fired Damore because he violated the company's code of conduct, which states that Googlers should "do their utmost to create a workplace culture that is free of harassment, intimidation, bias and unlawful discrimination".
Gudeman worked at Google from 2013 until December 2016, when he claims he was wrongfully terminated from the tech company, according to the complaint.
Google did not immediately respond to request for comment.
As BuzzFeed News reports, several women have filed discrimination suits against Google, alleging that the company paid them less than their male counterparts, and faulting the company for asking the female hires about prior pay.
Damore has said that Google executives had "shamed" him for the views expressed in the memo. "Google has engaged in some shocking activities in my opinion".
The case is Damore v. Google LLC, 18-cv-321529, Superior Court of California, Santa Clara County (San Jose).
While many have argued there's a bubble in Silicon Valley that contributes to a lack of acceptance of people of color and women, this lawsuit use similar language to focus on discrimination by companies of political viewpoints. This controversy led to an uproar across the tech world, but also exposed the misogyny that women have to face within the industry.
The debate comes as Google is fighting claims by the U.S. Department of Labor that it systemically discriminates against women.
