The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WORLD -

MENLO PARK, Calif. — A for­mer Google en­gi­neer who was fired over a memo he wrote about gen­der dif­fer­ences says he’s ex­plor­ing all his le­gal op­tions and has al­ready filed a labour com­plaint over his treat­ment. James Damore, whose memo over the week­end caused an up­roar on­line, says in an email that he was ter­mi­nated late Mon­day for “per­pet­u­at­ing gen­der stereo­types.’’ He says he con­sid­ers his fir­ing il­le­gal be­cause he had al­ready filed a com­plaint with the Na­tional La­bor Re­la­tions Board.
