Google employee was unfairly dismissed because of the diversity memorandum document. Complaints Legal commentators said the case could be sued. Google engineers were recently fired for writing a 10-page viral memo. The memo complained The company’s diversity policy has filed a lawsuit against federal labor officials. James Damore filed a lawsuit against Google on August 7. The case page on the National Labor Relations Commission website stated that the law firm Paul Hastings will represent Google. Damore’s name is not listed, but it has been confirmed by Business Insider. So far, the only detailed information about the complaint is the classification of the allegations, namely “forced statements (threats, promises of benefits, etc.)”. After Damore argued the biological differences between men, the manifesto caused a media storm over the weekend. Women and women are the cause of the gender gap in Google and the broader technology industry. Damore was fired on Monday (the same day the lawsuit was filed) for “perpetuating gender stereotypes” and violating the company’s code of conduct. Damore had previously told other news media that he planned to file a complaint, and the New York Times reported that he claimed that Google’s senior management was “distorting and humiliating” him. Damore told the New York Times: “I have the legal right to express my concerns about the terms and conditions of my working environment and to raise potential illegal behaviors. This is what my document needs to do. Legal experts said the case was controversial, and an attorney told Wired magazine that “Damore’s attorney may argue that his memo is protected by California law because it involves allegedly unequal treatment of employees. “
