American labor association files complaint against Google for unlawful treatment to workers

Google terminated the workers on grounds of accessing internal and confidential documents

The US-based National Labor Relations Board has now filed a complaint against the global search engine giant Google, accusing it of illegally supervising and questioning employees/workers. The workers are said to have been fired by the company for protesting against unprofessional and unethical policies and forming a union.

When Google was reached for official comment, it said that it acted keeping laws in mind. An anonymous Google spokesperson said, “Google has always worked to support a culture of internal discussion, and we place immense trust in our employees,” it said. “Actions undertaken by the employees at issue were a serious violation of our policies and an unacceptable breach of a trusted responsibility.”

The labor body opined that Google is carrying out its activities on workers illegally for quite a long time. It terminated the workers on grounds of accessing internal and confidential documents, and moreover, it also sent them on administrative leave illegally. The regulator termed Google’s policies as unlawful. Google’s clever tactics of investigating employees were basically done at deterring workplace organization.

Google further clarified that its workers violated information security rules. The scuffle is going on between them for over two years. A Reuters report claims that Google terminated at least five people after they tried to rally with other employees along with the Communications Workers of America union.
