Another former employee sues Google over issues of diversity

By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Another former Google employee is suing the tech company over issues of diversity.

Software developer Tim Chevalier, who is transgender, says he was fired for speaking up about online bullying he experienced at the company and complaining about discrimination, harassment and white supremacy on Google's internal messaging system.

The lawsuit comes after another former employee, James Damore, sued the company after he was fired for writing a memo criticizing Google for pushing mentoring and diversity programs. Damore's lawsuit alleged his ouster was driven by a corporate culture that discriminates against white men conservatives.

Chevalier's lawsuit was filed Wednesday in San Francisco County Court.

In a statement, Google said it prohibits promoting harmful stereotypes based on race or gender and decides on termination, "without any regard to the employee's political views."
