Google sacks 48 people for sexual harassment

  • Andy Rubin

Rubin took a leave of absence from Essential last November after The Information reported the nature of his departure from Google.

Google conducted an investigation and found the allegations to be credible.

There is little doubt that Larry Page didn't know about Andy Rubin's immoral acts. "Instead of firing Rubin and paying him no penny, Google handed him a $90 million exit package, paid in installments of about $2 million a month for four years".

According to an email sent to employees at the search engine giant, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said that the company was "taking an increasingly hard line on inappropriate conduct by people in positions of authority".

Soon after the article was published, Sundar Pichai, Google's chief executive and VP of people operations Eileen Naughton wrote an e-mail to all Google employees regarding their safety in the Google workspace. Google also invested millions of dollars in his next venture, the newspaper reported. In 2011, he had a consensual relationship with a woman on the Android team who did not report to him, they said.

A screenshot of an alleged email sent by Rubin to one of these women said "You will be happy being taken care of ..." "Being owned is kinda like you are my property, and I can loan you to other people". Google went on doing business with Andy Rubin as if nothing ever happened.

Before the situation that led to his dismissal, security found bondage videos on his work computer, the Times reported.

Sam Singer said Mr Rubin made a decision to leave Google in 2014 to launch a venture capital firm and technology incubator called Playground.

Rubin, responding to the story, said it is wrong on a number of counts. The Android co-founder has denied that he coerced the woman into having sex.

Later, Rubin tweeted that the story was a "smear campaign". One is still employed in the company.

The Times also detailed Google's rules on workplace relationships, and other ways in which it has struggled to enforce them fairly.

Drummond is the current chief legal officer of Google parent Alphabet as well as the chairman of CapitalG. Most famously, an engineer at Uber posted detailed accounts about how she was harassed by her manager, and how the company HR did not help her at all. Drummond's career, meanwhile, accelerated. DeVaul is a director at X, the company's "moonshot" division. She relented to a neck rub because, "I didn't have enough spine or backbone to shut that down as a 24-year-old", she said.

Upon returning from the trip, she learned she didn't get the job. A year later, the accuser filed a complaint to Google's human resources department and told officials about the relationship. The company also kept quiet about the misconduct investigation.
