One #Google Staffer Fired, Two Others Put on Leave Amid Tensions


Source: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-11-12/one-google-staffer-fired-two-others-put-on-leave-amid-tensions
The documents concerned a mandatory tool that was recently installed on the Google #Chrome browser on workers’ computers, the #employees said. In October, some Google employees raised concerns that the Chrome extension was an internal #surveillance tool designed to monitor their attempts to organize protests. It would automatically report staffers who create a calendar event with more than 10 rooms or 100 participants, according to an #employee memo that outlined concerns about the tool. A Google representative said the extension was merely an attempt to reduce calendar spam.
