SAN FRANCISCO – Google has announced the dismissal of 48 employees for sexual harassment in the past two years and dismissed them without severance pay, a few hours after the announcement of an article that it allegedly protected executives men faced with charges of sexual misconduct and offered them large sums to leave.
Thursday’s surprise announcement came in an e-mail sent to Google employees by CEO Sundar Pichai. This was a direct response to a New York Times report that the company had fired the manager in charge of his Android software for sexual misconduct in 2014 and paid him generously for his departure.
A spokesman for Andy Rubin, the former head of Android, said that he had left of his own accord and that he had never been informed of no charge of sexual misconduct. Rubin acknowledges having consensual sex with Google employees who have not reported to him, thus meeting the limits set by Google’s policy at the time, according to spokesman Sam Singer.
In his email, Pichai said that Google had adopted stricter rules in 2015. These rules require all senior vice presidents and vice-presidents of Google to disclose any relationship with an employee, even if they do not work in the same department or they have another potential conflict.
