GOOGLE WORK­ERS UP IN ARMS

Business Today - - THE BUZZ -

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.
