JUDGE: U.S. ASKED FOR TOO MUCH DATA

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

NEW YORK» An ad­min­is­tra­tive law judge has ruled that La­bor De­part­ment of­fi­cials in­ves­ti­gat­ing gen­der pay bias had asked Google for data in a way that’s too broad and in­tru­sive on em­ployee pri­vacy.

Google still must pro­vide data, in­clud­ing con­tact in­for­ma­tion, on 8,000 em­ploy­ees — just not data on the more than 25,000 work­ers orig­i­nally sought.

At is­sue is whether Google pays women less than men. The La­bor De­part­ment said in April that it found “sys­temic com­pen­sa­tion dis­par­i­ties.” But Google de­nied the charges, say­ing it con­ducts rig­or­ous anal­y­sis to en­sure that its pay prac­tices are gen­der-blind.
