Google Wins Legal Fight with Labor Department Over Gender Pay Gap Data


An administrative law judge has ruled that the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) have been asking for way too much data while trying to address reported pay disparities between men and women working for Google.

On Friday, an administrative law judge for the United States Department of Labor issued a recommended decision and order regarding a demand for extensive data about Google employees made by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor. The decision concluded that the OFCCP demands were "over-broad, intrusive on employee privacy, unduly burdensome and insufficiently focused on obtaining the relevant information." This means that the Office couldn't justify why it needed as much info as it wanted.

The Department had been asking for job data up to 15 years old, and wanted far-ranging personal data that included addresses and contact info for over 25,000 employees.

Google ssid it would honor the rest of the order and provide the "much more limited" data the judge said was acceptable. That includes the contacts for a sample of 8,000 workers.

"While we're pleased with Friday's recommended decision, we remain committed to treating, and paying, people fairly and without bias with regard to factors like gender or race," said Eileen Naughton, Google's VP of People Operations. "We are proud of our practices and leadership in this area, and we look forward to working constructively with OFCCP, as we complete this review and in the future."
