Google Sued in Class Action Alleging Sex Discrimination

Altshuler Berzon LLP, with co-counsel Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein LLP, filed a lawsuit in San Francisco Superior Court alleging that Google has engaged in systemic and pervasive pay and promotion discrimination against its female employees in California.  The lawsuit, Ellis v. Google Inc., filed by Kelly Ellis, Holly Pease, and Kelli Wisuri, accuses Google of paying women at all levels less than comparable men, assigning women to lower tiers and/or job ladders with lower compensation and/or upward mobility than those to which similar men are assigned, and promoting women slower and less frequently than their male counterparts.  Plaintiffs allege that Google has long known of these issues but has failed to correct them, causing substantial damage to its female workforce.
