Google fires four employees for ‘data-security violation’

Nov 26, 2019 16:06 IST

Google has fired four employees for allegedly violating the search giant’s data-security policies in the course of their labour dispute. This could worsen tensions between its management and workers who have protested the company’s handling of several issues, including sexual harassment, its treatment of contract employees and a controversial AI drone program for the Pentagon. Google, which was considered a standard for the modern workplace, has cracked down on an open-culture that encouraged employees to speak out.
