Google fired 48 people for sex harassment in last two years

Don't be evil my ass

Contributing to Google's bad day was a New York Times report that one senior employee, Android creator Andy Rubin, received an exit package worth $90 million (roughly Rs. 660 crores) as he faced allegations of misconduct, and that Google had covered up other claims of sexual harassment. She was also asked to keep quiet about what happened. But even if we give Google the benefit of the doubt, it still does not justify the investment in Andy Rubin's VC, Playground Ventures.

Google's co-founder Larry Page had then asked Rubin for his resignation, according to the report. After security found the videos, the company reacted by cutting his bonus pay.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Andy Rubin said Rubin left on his own accord and has never been informed of any accusations of sexual misconduct. These relationships were not disclosed to the HR, flouting company policy. "You will be happy being taken care of", he wrote. "Being owned is kinda like you are my property, and I can loan you to other people".

Surprisingly, $90 million was only a start. The woman reported the incident to HR in 2014. All of this, while hushing up the allegations and the ensuing investigation. Google X Director Richard DeVaul was accused of telling an interviewee that he and his wife were polyamorous before inviting said interviewee to Burning Man.

The woman had been casually seeing Rubin and had gone to the hotel to break off the relationship.

He added that the company "support and respect those who have spoken out". And this was after several public reports of Rubin insulting employees and the alleged discovery of inappropriate sexual content on his laptop.

"To his knowledge, at that time there were no policies in place that prohibited relationships between employees", Singer continued. A year later, the accuser filed a complaint to Google's human resources department and told officials about the relationship.

No New Nuclear Arms In Europe Despite Russian Treaty Breach
But Stoltenberg did not encourage the U.S. , the biggest and most influential member of NATO , to stay in the treaty. He said he was referring to both Russian Federation and China, and "anybody else that wants to play that game".

It came as Google's parent company Alphabet announced third quarter profits up 36% at $9.2bn (£7.1bn). She felt coerced to at least receive a neck rub.

According to the New York Times report, it was not the first time Rubin had got into trouble. It said that none of these individuals 'received an exit package'. Singhal took millions when he left. Recode unveiled the internal investigation and Uber pushed Singhal out after only a few weeks.

He said the company had taken an "increasingly hard line on inappropriate conduct by people in positions of authority" and had terminated 48 people as a result.

But Google engineer and worker advocate Liz Fong-Jones remains incredulous.

Mr. Rubin was one of three executives that Google protected over the past decade after they were accused of sexual misconduct. He claimed the "false allegations" are part of a "smear campaign" to disparage him in the ongoing divorce with his ex-wife. By 2013, she had cooled on him and wanted to break things off but was anxious it would affect her career.

The Times reported that Rubin was found to have pressured a woman with whom he had an extramarital relationship into performing oral sex in a hotel room in 2013.
