Employees are looking to walk-out at global offices of company after it took steps regarding sexual harassment in Google.
To overcome the sexual harassment in Google, company fired 48 employees since 2016. However, around 1500 workers, most of them women are planning the walk-out at organization’s offices present worldwide. The expected move is a reaction of Google’s handling of sexual harassment cases at workplace.
“We would prefer not to feel that we’re unequal or we’re not regarded any longer,” Claire Stapleton, 33, Product Marketing Manager at Google’s YouTube, was cited as saying. In a letter to workers a week ago, Chief Executive Sundar Pichai said the company was taking a “hard line” on misconduct.
The letter was in light of report that Android maker Andy Rubin got a $90 million leave bundle regardless of confronting unfortunate behavior charges. “We need to guarantee you that we audit each and every grievance about lewd behavior or improper direct, we research and we make a move,” said Pichai. Over the previous week, Pichai and Larry Page, CEO of Alphabet and co-founder of Google said that they have found a way to quiet its unsettled 94,000-man workforce.
As indicated by sources, then-Chief Executive Page requested that Rubin leave after the organization affirmed a grumbling by a female representative about a sexual misconduct case in a room of hotel in 2013.
A Google investigation observed the lady’s grumbling to be valid. Rubin has said he didn’t take part in wrongdoing and left Google voluntarily.
