YouTube Hiring for Some Positions Excluded White and Asian Males, Lawsuit Says

Google accused of excluding Asians, whites for some positions

According to a lawsuit filed by former Google engineer Loretta Lee the tech giant’s ‘bro-culture’ lead to routine sexual harassment and lewd comments at work

Wilberg claims that his manager sent the team an email that stated, "please continue with L3 candidates in process and only accept new L3 candidates that are from historically underrepresented groups".

Damore, however, is still seeking to prove that Google discriminates against White conservative men with a class action lawsuit.

A former YouTube employee is suing parent company Google, for which he worked for a total of nine years, alleging that he was sacked for refusing to adhere to hiring practices that discriminated against white and Asian males.

The lawsuit filed by Mr. Wilberg and people familiar with the hiring practices allege that since at least 2016, YouTube recruiters had hiring quotas or targets for "diversity candidates", including black, Hispanic and female candidates. He claims one co-worker "complained that managers were speaking about blacks like they were objects" during conversations about a initiative called "Project Mirror" that was to see recruiters only interviewing potential hires of their same race or gender.

"In response to Wilberg's complaints and warnings Google would occasionally circulate e-mails instructing its employees (to) purge any and all references to the race/gender quotas from its e-mail database ... to wipe out any paper trail of Google's illegal practices", according to his lawsuit. During that period, he claims the company put a freeze on hiring White and Asian men while also setting hiring quotas for so-called "diversity candidates".

A Google spokesperson has stated that the company plans to defend itself entirely against the lawsuit, "We have a clear policy to hire candidates based on their merit, not their identity", said the spokesperson. When Wilberg did not adhere to those rules, his performance reviews suffered, he alleges. "You could have spoken up years ago for people who were actually being discriminated against".

In another lawsuit this week, Google was dragged to court by a former female employee, who claimed that she often faced discrimination because of the so-called "bro culture" at the company. Former Google employee James Damore had earlier claimed that he was sacked for writing an anti-diversity memo which caused controversy.

According to Bloomberg, Arne Wilberg worked at Google for nine years as both an employee and contractor.

Although Google initially fought not to disclose the demographic makeup of its workforce, the company was the first big company in Silicon Valley to release an annual diversity report, which is now common practice among tech firms.

Shemla's analysis found that there is often a mismatch between an organization's diversity policy and the company's goals or between the policy and the way it is implemented.
