Judge Rules in Google's Favour in Employee Data Case Against Labor Department

Labor Department sides with Google Judge Rules in Google's Favour in Employee Data Case Against Labor Department

The judge cited that the request made by the agency was "intrusive on employee privacy, unduly burdensome and insufficiently focused" as the OFCCP couldn't justify their request for the amount of info they wanted.

The request was made in September 2015 as part of an audit by the OFCCP (Google is a federal contractor, so it is required to let the government review data that is relevant to its compliance with equal employment laws).

Citing fears about hacking - and recent cyber attacks on the USA government - the court instead recommended the agency seek and obtain from Google the telephone numbers and email addresses from up to 5,000 of its workers, provided the company already has that data in its possession.

The US Department of Labor had earlier asked Google to share personal details of its current as well as previous employees to ascertain claims related to pay disparity between male and female employees and the judge incharge of the case has ruled in the search engine giant's favour.

MSG Networks Inc. (MSGN) Shares Sold by JPMorgan Chase & Co
On average, equities research analysts forecast that MSG Networks Inc. will post $2.21 earnings per share for the current year. River Road Asset Management LLC raised its stake in The Madison Square Garden Company by 6.0% in the first quarter.

A spokesman for the Department of Labor, meanwhile, did not immediately respond Sunday night to an email about its next step.

Those records are at the center of the new ruling, with Google successfully arguing that handing over the additional records breaches privacy laws and could expose staff to identity theft in the event of a government data breach. That information if provided to the government "could ease the efforts of malicious hackers or misdirected government employees", he said.

The judge decided that the OFCCP will have to do more work if it wants to receive more info.

The Labor Department should move more slowly and deliberately with its investigation, Berlin added, rather than demanding data in bulk while offering "nothing credible or reliable to show that its theory [.is] anything more than speculation". Google also celebrated the judge's finding that the company's annual merit-based pay raises were "intricately designed" to bring people with the same job and performance rating to the same salary over time.

"Assuming the recommended decision becomes final, we'll comply with the remainder of the order, and provide the much more limited data set of information the judge approved, including the contact information for a smaller sample of up to 8,000 employees", Eileen Naughton, vice president of people operations at Google, said in a blog post.

"The anecdotal experience of men and women working at Google is obviously really relevant, and that's where we're going with the next phase of the investigation".
