Two former Google employees have filed a class-action lawsuit Monday against Google, with the allegation that the company discriminates against conservative white men, The Hill reported.
The two men are Jame Damore, a former Google programmer, and David Gudeman, a former Google engineer.
The lawsuit states that "Damore, Gudeman, and other class members were ostracized, belittled, and punished for their heterodox political views, and for the added sin of their birth circumstances of being Caucasians and/or males . . . this is the essence of discrimination —Google formed opinions about and then treated plaintiffs not based on their individual merits, but rather on their membership in groups with assumed characteristics," The Hill's report said.
Damore was fired from Google in August after writing an internal memo that accused Google of silencing conservative opinions, and he argued that biological differences are part of the reason for a shortage of women in technology.
Gizmodo posted the memo in August, in which Damore wrote that women are susceptible to "neuroticism," which leads to higher anxiety and low stress tolerance.
