It’s unfortunate that this is happening again to Google after fresh allegations of gender pay discrimination were filed in a revised lawsuit.
The new complaint, which was filed on Wednesday says Google pays female teachers in the company's childcare center less than their male counterparts, even when the men are less qualified.
The fresh allegations follow a class-action discrimination lawsuit filed against the company in September. That alleged Google routinely pays less and offers fewer promotions to its female employees. It was dismissed last month for being too broad.
The initial suit was followed by a pay disparity investigation by the Department of Labor. In April, the department said it had "compelling evidence" of discrimination against women. One of the investigators said, "Discrimination against women in Google is quite extreme, even in this industry."
The giant search engine had a momentary win in June when a judge declared the company didn't have to give the department information it requested about worker salaries. In response, Google claims it closed its gender pay gap last year.
The company’s spokesman made a statement in regards to Wednesday's lawsuit, by repeating an earlier statement which said, "We disagree with the central allegations of this amended lawsuit."
