Google Accused of "Extreme" Gender Pay Discrimination by US Labor Department

Despite the Department of Labor’s findings, Google is denying these accusations of inequities and claims it does not have a gender pay gap. The company appears to be hiding something, however, as it has repeatedly refused to hand over employees’ job and salary history even though it may be required by law.

Google has discriminated against its female employees, according to the US Department of Labor (DoL), which said it had evidence of "systemic compensation disparities". As part of an ongoing DoL investigation, the government has collected information that suggests the internet search giant is violating federal employment laws with its salaries for women, agency officials said. "We found systemic compensation disparities against women pretty much across the entire workforce," Janette Wipper, a DoL regional director, testified in court in San Francisco on Friday.
