The New York Times published a story that indicates that Google has protected senior executives accused of sexual harassment. The company’s CEO said, however, that the technicians take a tougher line against all employees who are in sexual abuse.
Take Google Sexual Harassment Seriously?
On Thursday The New York Times published a story claiming that Google paid $ 90 million to Android founder Andy Rubin in its starting package ̵

The report continues to paint a picture of Google that protects senior executives accused of sexual harassment. Amit Singhal, a former Google Search Manager, also received a release package that was paid in millions after he retrieved charges as he dropped an employee.
Google does not deny all claims in the report. On Thursday, Corporate Managing Director Sundar Pichai and Corporate Manager Eileen Naughton sent an email to staff who said: “Today’s story in the New York Times was difficult to read.”
Pichai and Naughton were quick to add that Google is “deadly serious” about making the company a “safe and inclusive workplace”.
The email – which PCMag received by a business proponent – provides an overview of Google’s latest efforts to stop sexual misconduct. 19659011] It finds that Google has suspended 48 employees in the last two years for sexual harassment. 13 of the employees were senior executives or higher, and none of them got an exit package.
“We want to make sure that we review every single complaint about sexual harassment or inappropriate behavior, we investigate and we take action”, reads the email. An updated Google policy also requires the company’s vice presidents and senior vice presidents to disclose relationships with employees, regardless of the “reporting line or the occurrence of conflicts”.
Everything said is not mentioned in the email Singhal and Rubin, both of whom left Google over two years ago. The New York Times report suggests that Google paid Rubin the big issue to prevent him from working with a competitor and deviating the company through an incorrect termination suit.
Sam Singer, a Rubin spokesman, told New York Times that the Android founder left Google on his own and did not engage in sexual misconduct while he was employed by the company.
