Fired Engineer Says Google Discriminated Based on His 'Male Gender,' 'Caucasian Race'

Google fired James Damore in August 2017

James Damore, a former Google engineer who was sacked after he wrote a controversial memo claiming that biological differences between men and women might explain why there's a gender gap in tech, is alleging in a lawsuit that the tech firm discriminates against men, conservatives and white people. The memo in which he criticized the company's hiring practices, and claimed that disparities between men and women in the technology industry were at least partially due to behavioral differences between those genders due to biology, led to his firing from the company in August.

The suit claims Google maintains a blacklist of conservatives media personalities not allowed on company grounds: It allegedly includes radio host Alex Jones and conservative blogger Curtis Yarvin.

In a class action lawsuit against Google filed Monday in Santa Clara Superior Court in Northern California, Damore and another former Google engineer, David Gudeman, argue that Google has an "open hostility for conservative thought".

Shortly following the memo's release, Google's Chief Executive Sundar Pichai announced that the memo had violated Google's code of conduct "by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace".

Damore's suit, which comes from the opposite end of the spectrum, was expected, given his very public hiring of Dhillon, in August. Earlier this month, four women plaintiffs as part of a revised lawsuit, alleged that the company had asked for their prior salaries and had underpaid them compared to their male counterparts.

Damore was sacked in August of 2017 after he penning a memo to a Google message board titled "Google's Ideological Echo Chamber".
