Google to pay $118 million over gender wage gap lawsuit

In the culmination of a recent class action lawsuit over Google’s gender discrimination pay gap, plaintiffs have finally reached an agreement with the company. Google will pay the affected employees $118 million, and supervised changes are to be made within the company.

Back in 2017, Google’s vice president of people operations Eileen Naughton responded to accusations (opens in new tab) that female employees were paid ‘systematically’ less than men (opens in new tab) in similar roles. The US Department of Labor (DoL) then asked Google to hand over salary records (opens in new tab) for a government audit, and the case snowballed from there.
