Alleged Company Retaliation Prompted Massive Employee Walkout

May 13th, 2019
race discrimination

Two Google employees organized an employee walkout prompted by their retaliation allegations against the company. The Google Walkout also aired employees’ dissatisfaction regarding the handling of sexual harassment claims against two executives who received nearly $135 million in payouts. A record 20,000 workers participated in the walkout in November 2018 in support of the organizers and as a protest to the culture they believed Google permitted, which included racial and sexual discrimination. They cited a hostile work environment with instances of gaslighting, demotions, and cancellations of projects as well.

One of the organizers claimed that she was urged to abandon other projects so that she could stay in her position. The other organizer faced the cancellation of projects and the potential loss of half her reports, which led to her hiring a lawyer to fight the demotion. Unfortunately, she feels that the legal action she took did not eliminate the hostile work environment she continues to experience. The organizers held a “Google Retaliation Town Hall” on April 26 for Google employees to discuss their work experiences and plan what future action to take against the company.
