The department of labor will keep bothering Google for the salary records because the tech titan keeps joining the handover. These record can be proved at once and Mountain View truly pays women a lot less then it does mean.

The labor department is blaming the big G of “systemic compensation disparities against women pretty much across the entire workforce” and it sues the company for its salary information.

Google tells that it would pay over $100,000 and up to 500 hours to fulfill the DoL’s request, That is a very small amount for a tech titan that Ian Eliasoph, one of the agency’s lawyers tells that the company will earn the 28$ billion annually.


 “Google would be able to absorb the cost as easy as a dry kitchen sponge could absorb a single drop of water,” He is also considered that the company will donate the funds for improving the diversity.

The big G’s lawyer claimed, however, that Mountain View has already spent $500,000 and 2,300 hours for manpower on the demands of Agency’s.

These demands are “broad and unconstitutional,” since the company department salary information can be violated employees’ privacy. A Google spokesperson tells that  “include thousands of employees’ private contact information which we safeguard rigorously.”

Here’s the tech giant’s full statement:

“We’e very committed to our affirmative action obligations, and to improving the diversity of our workforce, and have been very vocal about the importance of these issues. As a federal contractor, we’re familiar with our obligations and have worked collaboratively with the OFCCP. We’ve worked hard to comply with the OFCCP’s current audit and have provided hundreds of thousands of records over the last year, including those related to compensation. However, the handful of OFCCP requests that are the subject of the complaint are overbroad in scope, or reveal confidential data, and we’ve made this clear to the OFCCP, to no avail. These requests include thousands of employees’ private contact information which we safeguard rigorously. We hope to continue working with OFCCP to resolve this matter.”
