Google will lose 11 million dollars due to the age prejudices of its HR

Google agrees to pay $11 million to settle class action lawsuit

employees who were not hired because of their age.

Who suffered

In total, 227 people of age will receive compensationover 40 years old is more than $35,000 each. The remaining $2.75 million will be earned by victims' lawyers. Google has promised that it will conduct age bias training among its employees. They will also create a committee that will deal with issues of age diversity when hiring employees. The latter is very reminiscent of last year's scandal around Riot Games.

The lawsuit was originally filed by Cheryl Fillekes, sheaccused Google of “systematically discriminating” on the basis of age. The search giant denies the allegations, adding that the technical knowledge of Phillex and the other plaintiffs does not meet the requirements of the positions for which they are applying. However, Google agreed to the payment.
