Google has been accused of paying low to female employees compared to the male counterpart. During a court hearing on Friday in San Francisco the US Department of Labor official disclosed it that has been alleged by government investigations.
According to a Labor Department regional director, Janette Wipper, systemic compensation disparities against the female workers have been found in Google.
The search engine giant meanwhile said it disagrees with the charges and this has not been heard anytime earlier until Wipper’s court appearance.
In a released press statement the Mountain View company said, “Every year, we do a comprehensive and robust analysis of pay across genders and we have found no gender pay gap.”
The Labor Department is currently scrutinizing Silicon Valley for pay patterns as well as hiring discrimination.
In the beginning of 2017 Oracle was sued by the Labor Department for paying male workers more than the female workers for the same type of work.
It was also alleged the company paid lower salary to non-white employees.
Meanwhile, it was learned Google as well as other tech giants have been trying to improve up their hiring practices to strike a better balance.
