A high-ranking Google executive was fired last year and, according to his lawsuit, the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion HR tyrants had it out for him because he wasn't willing to give up a merit-based evaluation in the name of "inclusion."
Businesses are no longer driven by the bottom line. They are driven by managers who are more committed to woke nonsense than actual business.
Here's some of The Daily Wire's report:
A former high-ranking Google executive, who was allegedly sexually harassed by his boss, was later fired by the tech giant for failing to be "inclusive" simply because he favored high-performing employees, according to a lawsuit filed in New York federal court.
In August, Google fired Ryan Olohan as managing director of food, beverage, and restaurants, telling him it was because he was not "inclusive" enough, according to the lawsuit.
"In response to Olohan's request during the call for specifics as to why Google believed he was not inclusive, Google's Employee Investigations team explained that he had shown favoritism towards high performers, which it considered ‘non-inclusive,' and commented on employees' walking pace and hustle, which it considered ‘ableist,'" the suit said.
This is serious. If you comment on an employee's "hustle" then you are a bigoted "ableist" in the eyes of Google.
According to this suit, Google thinks he's a non-inclusive bigot because he likes hard workers.
In February 2022, Adam Stewart, vice president of Google's consumer, government & entertainment division, told Olohan that there were "obviously too many white guys" in the division and in July, Stewart and the company's human resources department "encouraged Olohan to terminate the employment of a male member of his team and replace him with a female hire," the suit said.
The suit said that the vague references to "inclusion" seemed to simply fault Olohan for being a white male. "Defendants discriminated against Olohan because of his gender and race, in violation of his statutory rights," the suit said.
The civil rights act has been turned and weaponized against white people. It's a simple fact. Only "preferred minorities" are protected from firings. And if you see a problem with firing a white guy BECAUSE of his race and sex, you're basically considered a Jim Crow segregationist.
The lawsuit says that Olohan himself was the victim of sexual harassment at work, which the company did not seem interested in policing. A female employee, Tiffany Miller, allegedly drunkenly "rubbed his stomach" at a work party and told him he had "such a nice body," the lawsuit said. Olohan filed a human resources complaint, but the company did nothing — with an HR rep noting that if the situation was "reversed," with a man coming onto a woman, it would have, the lawsuit said.
Olohan sued Google as well as Miller, saying Miller repeatedly accused him of "microaggressions" in retaliation, but that human resources officials were present for his remarks and confirmed that he had not microaggressed, it said.
Google is what happens when a major organization is taken over by woke. If they allegations in this lawsuit hold water, then it's clear that Google doesn't care about anything except DEI, even if it is at the expense of a properly functioning company.
Google said in a statement "This employee was terminated with cause after a thorough investigation of complaints by numerous employees. We firmly stand by our decision here and we will vigorously defend ourselves against these claims."
If they think the term "hustle" is ableist, then finding cause against a white man they want to terminate is a low bar to hurdle.
Hopefully, this lawsuit will bring justice for Olohan and expose Google if they are, indeed, in the wrong.
