Google Equal Pay Class Action Goes Ahead
The lawsuit has since been re-filed with amendments, including those relating to the specific positions included in the class action, and Google’s common practice of using new hires’ previous salary when making an offer of employment, rather than ensuring a culture of equal and fair pay exists within the organization.

Google Equal Pay Class Action Goes Ahead

In September last year, three female former employees of Google Inc. filed a class action against the internet giant, claiming there was a considerable gap between the salaries of men and women working at the company. On first attempt, the court granted Google’s motion to dismiss the suit, allowing the women a chance to amend the class action. The lawsuit has since been re-filed with amendments, including those relating to the specific positions included in the class action, and Google’s common practice of using new hires’ previous salary when making an offer of employment, rather than ensuring a culture of equal and fair pay exists within the organisation. This amended equal pay class action has now survived the pleading stage, and will continue to progress through the California legal system.
