Google’s Chief Executive Sunder Pichai said that the company had fired 48 employee for sexual harassment over the past two years. Pichai sent an email to Google employee in response to a New York Times story.
Of those 48 people, 13 were “Senior Manager and above” and none of them got an exit package when they were let go.
The email, which was obtained by CNBC, was in response to a bombshell New York Times Story that said Google had shielded a handful of company executive, including Android creator Andy Rubin, from sexual misconduct allegations and offered massive payouts to leave.
Email, which was also signed by Google vice president of people operations Eileen Naughton, said that company employees could use internal tools to report the case of inappropriate behavior anonymously.
It also said that, Google has updated its policy to require all vice president and senior vice presidents to disclose any relationship with a co-worker regardless of reporting line or presence of conflict.
We are committed to ensuring that Google is workplace where you can feel safe to do best work And where there are serious consequences for anyone who behaves inappropriately, the email said.
The memo attempted to reassure employee in the wake of an article that described behavior by a few senior executives. One who remains at the company, that “We review every single complaint about sexual harassment or inappropriate conduct”
Google had the option to fire Rubin in 2014 following an investigation that found sexual misconduct allegations against him to be credible.
Doing so would have required little to no severance. but the company opted not or instead Rubin received a $90 million exit package.
The company will pay him one final $2 million installment from that agreement sometimes next month. Larry Page sharked kind words about Rubin’s work and influence at Google in announcing his leaving.
Even after Rubin was gone , Google backed Rubin’s Playground Ventures VC and delayed the payback of a $14 million personal loan it had extended to him.
