Google investigated for dismissal of four workers - report

Monday, 09. December 2019 21:45

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) started a probe into circumstances surrounding Google LLC's firing of four workers on November 25 for what the company described as "searching for, accessing, and distributing business information outside the scope of their jobs," according to The Hill, citing a spokesperson for the agency on Monday.

The employees, namely Laurence Berland, Sophie Waldman, Rebecca Rivers and Paul Duke, claimed that they were not breaching the tech giant's data security policy and that it was used as justification for dismissing them as they were organizers of labor activity. NLRB decided to charge Google because it "unlawfully promulgated and enforced new data classification policies" and "initiated investigations against" the four workers who were fired "within minutes of each other."

Google's spokesperson rejected the claims of their former employees.
