(San Francisco, CA) — About 15-hundred Google employees, most of them women, are planning to walk off their jobs Thursday to protest the company’s handling of sexual harassment allegations. Workers are upset that the company paid millions of dollars in exit packages to male executives who were accused of harassment and did not disclose what they did. The walkout is expected to take place at almost two dozen different offices around the world. Google has 94-thousand employees.
The New York Times reported Google paid Andy Rubin 90 million dollars after concluding that a harassment claim against him was credible. Rubin created the Android mobile software and has denied the allegation. Google has since said it dismissed 48 people over sexual harassment allegations during the past two years and none of them received an exit package.
