Google has been accused of discriminating against conservative white men who filed in a class-action lawsuit by two former engineers.
The duo say they want to represent discriminated against all employees who, because of their “perceived conservative political views, male gender, and Caucasian race.”
James Amore, fired last year over a controversial memo, the behind the lawsuit.
His memo argued, there were only a few women in top jobs at the company due to the biological differences between men and women.

Mr d’amore, and David Gudeman, a former engineer at the company the lawsuit in Santa Clara Superior Court in California filed.
A spokesman from Google said they “look forward to the defence against Mr Damore action before the court.”
A separate lawsuit by three women who claimed earlier in the case of Google, that it pays women less than men for comparable work, released last month, was filled, but in an amended form.
Mr. d’amore and Mr. Gudeman claim in their lawsuit that Google has to fill in illegally setting quotas, the contributions of women and minorities.
They accuse the company of failure to protect employees with conservative views, including support of the U.S. President Donald Trump.
Their lawsuit, says the men had threatened to “openly and harassment, and reprisals” in the company, which they describe as an “ideological echo chamber”.
It Google says “open shames” managers who do not meet goals, even Boos to meet you.
Mr Damore memo caused a fierce debate about free speech in the world of work and the diversity in the Silicon Valley.
The memo was the focus on the assessment of the biological differences between men and women as highly controversial.

In the lawsuit, Mr. d’amore said the memo was intended to remain internal and to have been written in response to a request for feedback from the diversity and inclusion summit, which he had visited.
If Mr. d’amore lost his job, Google Executive Sundar Pichai said parts of the memo violated the company’s code of conduct and crosses “the line, by promoting harmful gender stereotypes in our world of work”.
But Mr. d’amore said he had “many personal messages from other Google employees, to Express their gratitude” for the talk.
Google is also under investigation by the U.S. Department of labor on the question of whether or not its pay practices, foul fall the equal pay laws.
