Google accused of excluding Asians, whites for some positions
Mar 03, 2018, 04:56
A former YouTuberecruiter is filing a lawsuit claiming that the tech company discriminated against white and Asian men in its hiring practices.
In the lawsuit, Wilberg said Google has "irrefutable policies, memorialised in writing and consistently implemented in practice, of systematically discriminating in favour [of] job applicants who are Hispanic, African-American, or female, and against Caucasian and Asian men".
McArthur facing 6th murder charge as cops identify more remains
Police identified the sixth suspected victim as Skandaraj Navaratnam, who disappeared in Toronto on Labour Day weekend in 2010. Court documents also indicate McArthur was convicted of assault with a weapon for attacking a man with a metal pipe in 2001.
A Google spokesperson responded to the suit, releasing a statement to the Journal that read, "We have a clear policy to hire candidates based on their merit, not their identity". When Lee filed a complaint with H.R.at the company's urging, she said that Google declined to investigate.
To help prove his allegations, Wilberg included a screenshot of a Google tracking system - which was subsequently deleted - that kept track of candidates' gender and race, pointing out that the company had not reached their goals in respect to hiring female, black and Latinx candidates.

Wilberg claims that he made multiple complaints to managers about YouTube's hiring process and escalated these complaints to superiors at Google before being fired last November. He alleges that YouTube attempted to hide their blatant hiring bias and that he was told in a meeting in January 2016 that the company had to "clean up" its diversity hiring practices. It claims that for several quarters, Google would only hire people from historically underrepresented groups for technical positions.
Wilberg's lawsuit targets Google and 25 unnamed Google employees who allegedly enforced discriminatory hiring rules, quoting a number of emails and other documents. Ever since, it has faced mounting pressure to improve diversity at workplace, and leave Asian and White male candidates behind. According to his lawsuit filed last month in San Mateo County, Google set hiring quotas and, at one point in 2017, explicitly informed recruiters to strictly hire "diverse" candidates. Wilberg stated that previous year and in 2016, he and other recruiters were told to approve or dismiss candidates based exclusively on whether they were women, black or Latino.
Although Google initially fought not to disclose the demographic makeup of its workforce, the company was the first big company in Silicon Valley to release an annual diversity report, which is now common practice among tech firms.
