He called up a press conference in San Francisco and convey the details. In January, the company fired James Damore.
On Wednesday, another ex-employee, Tim Chevalier filed a complaint against the company for dismissing him for posting a political view than others including criticism of Damore. He claimed that he trolled Damore’s 10-page memo as misogynistic, anti-Trump, racist, and sexist memes. A twitter account posted a screenshot of twitter profile of employees, which are color, women, or trans men. These profiles were targeted and harassed online. Tim Chevalier gave the details in his complaint. Gizmodo covered this news or first that two former employees have filed the case on the company.
Chevalier also said that Google attempted to justify is a dismissal by blaming his posts on social networking sites that showed unfairness against harassers. In November 2017, Chevalier is a disabled and transgender was terminated due to his posts on internal apps posts on women of color and marginalized.
