Google Notches Win In Gender Discrimination Lawsuit
GOOGLE NOTCHES A WIN IN GENDER DISCRIMINATION LAWSUIT
(CNN) – A class action gender discrimination claim against Google has been rejected.
Three former female employees filed a lawsuit against the company back in September.
They alleged that women were paid less than men; assigned to lower paying jobs and were promoted less often.
But a California judge denied the class action request this week saying the lawsuit was too broad.
The women’s attorney says an updated complaint will be filed to address the company’s alleged violation of the California equal pay act.
But Google says its own analysis shows it had no gender pay gap.
