Google Accused in Lawsuit of Excluding White and Asian Men in Hiring

Cyclist rides past Google sign

In his lawsuit, Wilberg, 40, also claims Google discriminated against him personally, firing him in November 2017 for his race and sex as a result of his complaints over the company's policies.

A former YouTube employee has filed a discrimination suit against the world's largest video site, alleging that its policy was to hire zero white or Asian men for tech positions.

"In response to Wilberg's complaints and warnings Google would occasionally circulate e-mails instructing its employees (to) purge any and all references to the race/gender quotas from its e-mail database.to wipe out any paper trail of Google's illegal practices", according to his lawsuit.

Wilberg's lawsuit targets Youtube, Google, and 25 Google employees.

Teasing Blizzard tweet features Diablo and a 'switch'
Nintendo Switch quickly seems to be becoming the console of choice for ports, remakes, and everything not-so-processor intensive. Naturally, followers on social media thought that was supposed to indicate that Diablo was being released to the Switch.

According to Google's own statistics, the company's USA workforce is 56-percent white, 35-percent Asian and 69 percent-male.

The problem is that mandatory quotas based on gender or ethnicity may violate USA anti-discrimination laws, depending on how they're implemented.

A few months back, James Damore, a former Google employee, claimed that he was sacked for writing an anti-diversity memo, which triggered loads of controversy both within and outside the organization.

The lawsuit describes several instances in which Wilberg says he raised concerns with supervisors and human resources executives only to allegedly be retaliated against. Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying merely said in Beijing Friday that China urges the USA to follow trade rules. The company is now facing a Federal complaint filed by the National Labor Relations Board in April for interfering with employees' legal right to discuss "workplace diversity and social justice initiatives.' The complaint alleges that Senior Vice President Urs Holzle and numerous managers in his organization actively stoked up witch hunts in 2015 and 2016 meant to muzzle low-level employees who raised concerns about the company's practices".

Ronda Rousey officially becomes a WWE superstar
Rather, the Raw commissioner will be an easy opponent for Rousey to squash, making her look unstoppable in the process. Graham Mirmina, aka Graham "GSM" Matthews, is an Endicott College alumnus and aspiring journalist.

Wilberg claims that his performance reviews began to suffer as he refused to follow YouTube's diversity hiring agenda. Managers then reportedly deleted all emails about diversity goals in an attempt to hide them from any further scrutiny.

Wilberg's lawsuit is the latest legal attack on Google and its workplace culture.

In January a woman named Heidi Lamar sued the company on charges that women working as preschool teachers in Google's child care center were paid lower salaries than male counterparts who had fewer qualifications.

Google, the first major Silicon Valley tech firm to publicly disclose its diversity statistics, said in a statement it would fight the lawsuit vigorously.

Cavs suspend JR Smith due to 'detrimental conduct'

Finally, a Department of Labor official has also accused Google of practicing "systemic" discrimination against female employees.
