Google, the Internet giant, has sacked the male engineer owing to the uproar in Silicon Valley over the last couple of weeks. The dismissal came post he wrote an interior letter declaring there are biological reasons for the gender discrimination in the tech sector.
The engineer who authored the memo, James Damore, verified his removal from office, answering in an email to the media this week that he had been sacked for “carrying on gender stereotypes.” Damore claimed that he was discovering all probable lawful remedies, and that prior to being fired, he had presented a charge to the U.S. NLRB (National Labor Relations Board) blaming upper management of the Google for making an effort to shame him into silence.
“It is against the law to strike back against a charge by NLRB,” he further added while writing to the media. Being an element of Alphabet Inc. located in California at Mountain View, Google claimed that it could not speak about separate employee cases. Sundar Pichai, the Chief Executive of Google, informed workers this week in a note that parts of the anti-diversity memo infringe our Code of Conduct and breach the border by advancing injurious gender stereotypes in our place of work. This was as per a copy of the note seen by the media.
It was not instantly clear what lawful power Damore might try to call upon. Non-union workers, such as most tech employees, can be sacked in the U.S. for a wide range of causes that have no relation with the performance. The National Labor Relations Act of the U.S. ensures employees, whether they are present in a union or not, the power to engage in intensive activities for their shared protection or aid.
Damore, although, might be expected to encounter an ascending fight to seek that defense on the basis of his memo. This was claimed by a Stanford University law professor, Alison Morantz. Morantz is an expert in labor regulations. “It is going to be difficult sell that this activity was either for mutual protection & aid or concerted, rather than just venting a group of employees against each other,” Morantz further claimed.
