Google sued for pay gap

The Weekend Post - - World -

GOOGLE is fac­ing a new law­suit ac­cus­ing it of gen­der­based pay dis­crim­i­na­tion.

A lawyer rep­re­sent­ing three fe­male for­mer Google em­ploy­ees is seek­ing class ac­tion status for the claim.

The suit fol­lows a fed­eral labour in­ves­ti­ga­tion find­ing sys­temic pay dis­crim­i­na­tion among the 21,000 em­ploy­ees at Google’s head­quar­ters in Moun­tain View, Cal­i­for­nia.

The re­view found women earned less than men in nearly all job clas­si­fi­ca­tions.

Google dis­puted the re­sult find­ings and said its anal­y­sis showed no gen­der pay gap.
