|LOS ANGELES Hydro Flask Coffee 12 Oz Coffee Lava Red UK Sale , Aug. 11 (Xinhua) -- Dozens of current and former Google employees are considering bringing a class-action lawsuit against the tech giant over alleged gender discrimination and pay disparities against women, according to media reports.
Civil rights attorney James Finberg, representing the female employees, told the Guardian that he has interviewed about half of the 60 women who may be part of the lawsuit and, based on their testimony Hydro Flask Coffee 12 Oz Coffee Graphite Grey UK Sale , found clear disparities and prejudices that hurt women at the company.
"They are concerned that women are channeled to levels and positions that pay less than men with similar education and experience," Finberg was quoted as saying by the Guardian in a Tuesday report.
Other women revealed their struggle to get promotions at Google due to a "culture that is hostile to women," Finberg added.
"Sixty people is a really small sample size," a Google spokesperson told the Guardian in reference to the women considering legal action. "There are always going to be differences in salary based on location, role and performance Hydro Flask Coffee 12 Oz Coffee Flamingo Pink UK Sale , but the process is blind to gender."
The latest development follows Google's firing of a male software engineer on Monday after he wrote a memo challenging the company's diversity policies.
James Damore argued in his 10-page memo that biological gender differences helped explain why women are underrepresented in tech companies. The memo, initially circulated internally, was leaked to the public over the weekend.
In response, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said portions of the memo "violate our Code of Conduct and cross the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace."
In April, the U.S. Department of Labor accused Google of systemic issues with equal pay.
"The government's analysis at this point indicates that discrimination against women in Google is quite extreme Hydro Flask Coffee 16 Oz Coffee Blueberry UK Sale , even in this industry," a lawyer of the department said.
Google is not the only company with a sexism problem. The issue is rampant in Silicon Valley.
In January, it was Oracle in the hot seat when the Labor Department filed a lawsuit against it alleging the leading tech company has "a systemic practice of paying Caucasian male workers more than their counterparts in the same job title, which led to pay discrimination against female, African American and Asian employees."
In February Hydro Flask Coffee 20 Oz Coffee Cobalt Blue UK Sale , ride-hailing service Uber was accused by former engineer Susan Fowler in a personal blog for fostering a toxic culture of sexism and harassment, a key event leading to the resignation of its CEO Travis Kalanick.?

Many Chinese remember the joy and tears at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, where China claimed its first-ever Olympic figure skating gold medal and dominated the women's short-track speed-skating rinks, sweeping all four golds. The record five gold medals Hydro Flask Coffee 20 Oz Coffee Black UK Sale , two silvers and four bronzes added cheer to that Spring Festival holiday.
But the country seems unlikely to fare as well this year at the Games in Sochi, Russia. That is in part because China's greatest hope for gold - short-track speed skater Wang Meng - will miss the Games due to injury.
Wang's injury 21 days before the Sochi Olympics open on Friday shocked the Chinese team.
China's most decorated Winter Olympian collided with a teammate during training in Shanghai on Jan 16 and underwent surgery on her ankle immediately afterward. She is expected to recover six to eight weeks after the procedure.
Wang won the 500m golds at the 2006 Turin and 2010 Vancouver Games in her signature event, for which she holds the world record. The 28-year-old has four Olympic golds, one silver and one bronze.
Still, the Chinese delegation has refused to give up hope. The team's deputy manager Liu Hao said the team's morale is high and it will stick to the original training plan.
China has always been a strong contender in short-track speed-skating Hydro Flask Hydration 18 Oz Standard Mouth Lemon Yellow UK Sale , in which Yang Yang won the country's first Winter Olympic gold in the women's 500m at the Salt Lake City Games in 2002.
Fan Kexin has been considered the best hope of gold since Wang's injury.
"Wang is not (China's) only hope in the women's 500m," said Yang, who has retired and is now an IOC member. "Fan has made great progress in recent years. Since there's no pressure on her, it is possible for her to surpass herself."
Fan finished second in the overall World Cup standings for the 500m this season. She was also the only woman other than Wang to win a 500m World Cup this season.
But Yang admitted that Wang's absence leaves little chance for China in middle and long-distance events.
"South Korea is traditionally strong on the short track," Yang said.
"The middle and long-distance events require rich experience Hydro Flask Hydration 21 Oz Standard Mouth Cobalt Blue UK Sale , but the Chinese team is young without Wang. As for the relay race, Wang used to be the leader, so her absence will cost the team."
At the Vancouver Games, the Chinese team swept all four golds in women's events - the 500m, 1 Hydro Flask Hydration 21 Oz Standard Mouth Black UK Sale ,000m, 1,500m and 3,000m relay.
Also facing pressure is China's freestyle skiing aerial team.
Its remarkable performance this season has given the team enough confidence to eye the golds for bo.
