500 employees of Google wrote a letter to Sundar Pichai, knowing this shameful act of the company, will be shocked!
More than 500 employees of the tech giant Google have written to Alphabet Inc and Google CEO Sundar Pichai seeking to stop giving protection to the oppressors by writing an open letter. Along with this, the letter also talks about providing an environment free of abuse to all employees.
Employees wrote this letter after former Google engineer Emi Nietfeld wrote an opinion piece in The New York Times. In it, Eimie Nietfeld alleged that she was forced to have one-on-one meetings with the person who harassed her.
Emi wrote that, "The person harassing me remained seated near me. My manager told that HR would not even be able to get him to change his seat, either work from home alone or go on holidays. ”
The letter, published late Friday on the medium, wrote that, "This is a long pattern where Alphabet protects the oppressor (haraiser) rather than protecting the troubled person from persecution." The person reporting the harassment is forced to bear the burden and usually has to leave the company. At the same time, the person who harasses him is rewarded for his behavior ”.
Old history of such adventures in the company
Employees of the company said that Alphabet has a history of workplace harasment. Android mobile software creator Andy Rubin was awarded an exit package of 90 million after a woman accused him of forcing her to perform oral sex. In addition, a $ 35 million package was given to Amit Singhal, a former search executive, who was forced to resign after an investigation into sexual harassment.
Emphasis was given on these things in the letter
The letter asserted that despite more than 20,000 Alphabet workers protesting against the sexual harassment and protection of harassers, Alphabet has not changed, and none of the Google Walkout demands have been met. It further stated that alphabet workers are entitled to the right to work in an environment free from abuse. The company should pay attention to the safety of other employees while paying attention to the aggrieved employees.
