As a class action lawsuit, the suit welcomes all former or current Google employee who have been discriminated against due to being white, male, or having "unpopular political views" to join. However, Damore's attorneys are extra bold in their assertion that another he, along with former Google employee (David Gudeman) and unspecified others, have been wronged to the degree that a class-action lawsuit is warranted.
The men are being represented by Harmeet K. Dhillon, the Republican National Committee's Comitteewoman for California.
The company uses illegal hiring quotas to achieve a certain percentage of women and minority employees, and "Google's management goes to extreme - and illegal - lengths to encourage hiring managers to take protected categories such as race and/or gender into consideration as determinative hiring factors, to the detriment of Caucasian and male employees", the complaint stated.
The lawsuit also argues that Google celebrates women as part of their workforce "solely due to their gender", which goes to show that Damore has learned nothing from his experience.
The suit claims white men were booed at company-wide meetings: "Not only was the numerical presence of women celebrated at Google exclusively due to their gender, but the presence of Caucasians and males was mocked with "boos" during company-wide weekly meetings". That month, the Dhillon Law Group published a blog post asking for anyone who had experienced illegal or retaliatory employment practices to get in touch.
A representative for Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
