Google agrees to pay $118 million to settle gender discrimination lawsuit

June 13, 2022

Google has agreed to pay $118 million to settle a class-action lawsuit accusing it of discriminatory decisions against its employees over pay and promotions at its California headquarters.

A joint statement by Liv Cabrassier Hyman & Bernstein and Altshuler Berzon said that the settlement includes approximately 1,500 female employees working in California since September 2013. The company also agreed that a third party would conduct a study on its recruitment and promotion processes, according to the French.

"After nearly five years of court proceedings, both parties have agreed that settling the case, without any admission (of responsibility) or conclusions, is in everyone's interest, and we are very pleased to have reached this agreement," a Google spokesperson said.

Former Google employees filed a lawsuit in 2017 before a San Francisco court, claiming that the giant corporation pays its female employees less salaries than men in the same positions, and that female employees received fewer promotions than men even though both parties have the same experience and qualifications. This is because the company based their previous salaries.
