The Google employee that was recently fired for his ten-page document on diversity has come out and said that he is likely to sue the company. His name is James Damore and he is a former software engineer. He's likely to sue according to The New York Times.

“likely be pursuing legal action. I have a legal right to express my concerns about the terms and conditions of my working environment and to bring up potentially illegal behavior, which is what my document does,” said James Damore to the Times.

He also mentioned that he had apparently submitted a complaint to the National Labor Relations Board. He may have submitted the report before he was fired and that he claimed Google's upper management was “misrepresenting and shaming me in order to silence my complaints,

Well by now you might be asking yourself what this memo is even called. It's apparently called Google's Ideological Echo Chamber.

Sundar Pichai, Google’s chief executive wrote: “The memo has clearly impacted our co-workers, some of whom are hurting and feel judged based on their gender. Our co-workers shouldn’t have to worry that each time they open their mouths to speak in a meeting, they have to prove that they are not like the memo states, being ‘agreeable’ rather than ‘assertive,’ showing a ‘lower stress tolerance,’ or being ‘neurotic.’”

The document has caused a widespread debate from both Google employees and non-Google employees. Some people feel that Google wanted to uphold a certain standard within the company. Others think that what Google did was wrong and that they need to reinstate his job. Whatever the case may be, this has caused a large debate to explode into action.

What Damore wrote is being called by some as an anti diversity memo. His memo was circulated around the company. Many feel that diversity hiring is bad because it can cause someone who is more qualified not to be hired. On the other hand, people feel diversity hiring is good because it gives everyone a chance at the job.

James Damore the former employee of Google was said to have been employed since 2013.
