Google has agreed to pay $118 million to settle a class action lawsuit alleging violations of California’s Equal Pay Act and Unfair Competition laws.  The lawsuit dates back to September 2017 when three former Google employees filed a class action litigation accusing the tech giant of systematic discrimination based on sex. Specifically, the suit alleges that women in the same job position (i.e., same job title performing substantially equal or similar work) were paid less than their male counterparts, citing a wage gap of around $17,000.
