Google Changes Harassment, Assault Policies after Mass Employee Protest
Google CEO announced a number of internal changes Thursday in response to global employee walkouts over the company's handling of sexual harassment. Among the changes, the company will no longer force employees with sexual assault or harassment claims into arbitration. The elimination of forced arbitration in harassment and discrimination cases is one of several sweeping changes Google employees called for with a coordinated protests at Google offices one week ago. Notably, the policy update does not apply to all discrimination claims.
