James Damore sues Google for firing him over his gender memo

11 January 2018

James Damore, the Google employee who was sacked previous year after his memo about diversity efforts at the company went viral, has filed a lawsuit against his former employer.

Filed by Dhillon Law Group, the suit looks to represent all Google employees who've been discriminated against due to their "perceived conservative political views by Google", "their male gender by Google", and "due to their Caucasian race by Google".

"Damore, Gudeman, and other class members 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", the 62-page lawsuit reads.

Damore was sacked in August 2017 after an internal memo he wrote on workplace identity politics, titled "Google's Ideological Echo Chamber", was leaked to the press.

Damore also claims that women are only employed by Google to fill quotas, rather than because of their skills and expertise in their jobs, and that white males were mocked with "boos" during weekly meetings. The lawsuit follows a complaint that Damore filed with the National Labor Relations Board in August on the basis that Google was "misrepresenting and shaming me in order to silence my complaints".

The suit goes on to explain how the Leftist mob mentality perpetuated and encouraged at Google led to some of the employees who harassed Damore being promoted for their actions, while certain blacklists were also formed against those who identified as Conservatives or supported President Donald Trump.

Two former Google software engineers are suing the tech giant, claiming that it discriminates against white people, conservatives and men.

Not only was Damore fired after his memo went public, but as he puts it, others who spoke out against him were rewarded. At the time of his ouster, Sundar Pichai, the chief executive of Google, described Damore's comments as "offensive", arguing they violating the company's Code of Conduct and would advance "harmful gender stereotypes in the workplace".

Google is now facing another lawsuit accusing the company of paying female employees less than their male counterparts.

The company has never given any indication that it fired Damore for his political views.

Not only was the numerical presence of women celebrated at Google exclusively due to their gender, but the presence of Caucasians and males was mocked with "boos" during company-wide weekly meetings.

Conservatives working at Google reported Leftists who were using discriminatory language and making brash and defamatory remarks about Conservatism and Republicans, but Google's human resources department made excuses for the Leftist Liberals, using mental gymnastics to defend the harassment coming from the Left.

In its firing of Damore, Google became a hero to neither those who thought the tech company didn't act quickly enough and those who thought it an affront to free speech.

Damore's class action suit comes about four months after his firing.
