Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment
It came after that state’s civil rights regulator, the Department of Fair Employment and Housing, began investigating Google’s treatment of Black female workers and possible discrimination in their workplace.
The plaintiff, April Curley said Google hired her in 2014 to design an account page program for black colleges, but my job turned out to be a marketing ploy.
Google fired Curley in September 2020, when he and his colleagues began working on a list of required reforms.
Curley’s lawyer says Google will try to compensate current and former black employees for damages and losses and restore them to their rightful positions.
