GOOGLE WORKERS UP IN ARMS
Google staffers all over the world staged walkouts on November 1 to protest its handling of sexual harassment and discrimination. The backlash came following a New York Times article on how Google had paid millions of dollars in exit packages to those accused of misconduct. Andy Rubin, the creator of the Android mobile software, got a $90 million exit package even after a harassment claim against him was considered credible. Consequently, Google agreed to end forced arbitration for sexual harassment claims.
