An ex-Google employee, fired after his internal memo arguing against the company's diversity efforts drew widespread criticism, has filed a proposed class action lawsuit against the company, NBC News reported.
On Monday, James Damore, the Google employee who was sacked for a memo in which he suggested that women were not biologically capable of working in the tech industry, filed suit against Google for discriminating against politically conservative white men. Damore was quickly fired.
"Google's management goes to extreme - and illegal - lengths to encourage hiring managers to take protected categories such as race and/or gender into consideration as determinative hiring factors, to the detriment of Caucasian and male employees and potential employees at Google", the suit reads.
The suit, filed in Santa Clara, California, alleged discrimination by Google against men, people of the "Caucasian race", and people with perceived conservative political views.

The Raiders made the proclamation on Twitter above a photo of Gruden from his first stint as Oakland's coach, from 1998 to 2001. He will be introduced by the Raiders at a media conference on Tuesday and replaces Jack Del Rio, who was sacked on December 31.
Jason Damore, a software engineer was sacked from Google after publishing a now-infamous memo about its hiring practices, has filed suit against the company.
Google fired Damore in August after he distributed a 3,000-word missive arguing that the "preferences and abilities of men and women differ in part due to biological causes and that these differences may explain why we don't see equal representation of women in tech and leadership".
In a press conference with his attorney on Monday, Damore said Google employees "felt like they couldn't talk about anything".
