A new lawsuit filed against Google alleges racial bias against Black employees along with promoting a hostile work environment. The plaintiff, who is seeking class certification, accuses the search engine giant of systemic, race-based discrimination against herself and other Black employees. The complaint alleges that the plaintiff was pushed towards low level and low paying jobs with little opportunity for promotion or career advancement. The complaint further contends that Google supports a “racially biased corporate culture” pointing to the fact that only Black employees comprise only 4.4% of the company’s workforce and 3% of company leadership.
