Google Hit With Gender-Pay Lawsuit

Four former Google employees, all of whom have worked in a variety of different roles within the company, have recently come forward to be a part of the revised gender-pay lawsuit that was filed on Wednesday.

Three of the four women were also a part of a lawsuit filed in September that suggested women were paid less than their male co-workers. The three were Kelly Ellis, Holly Pease and Kelli Wisuri. Ellis worked as a software engineer, Pease was in various management roles and Wisuri was in various sales roles.

The lawsuit was dismissed by a California judge who rejected the act as overly broad.  The newly filed lawsuit more specifically focuses more on Google and its employees. It also defines the groups more clearly as management, engineering, sales and teaching.

The fourth woman and new member to the lawsuit is Heidi Lamar. Lamar was employed by Google as a teacher at Google’s Children Center in Palo Alto from July 2013 to August 2017.

She claimed that of the 150 teachers employed by Google during her tenure, three of them were men. She alleges that two of the men were paid higher than the women who were working at the care center.

Google said that the claims are not accurate and has denied what was said. Gina Scigliano, a Google spokeswoman, sent a statement to CNN Money:

“We disagree with the central allegations of this amended lawsuit. We work really hard to create a great workplace for everyone, and to give everyone the chance to thrive here. Job levels and promotions are determined through rigorous hiring and promotion committees, and must pass multiple levels of review, including checks to make sure there is no bias in these decisions.”

The new suit cites a U.S. Department of Labor analysis of data on 21,000 Google employees for 2015. “That analysis found systemic compensation disparities against women pretty much across the entire workforce,’” the complaint stated.
