SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 4, 2018--

investigating whether certain directors and officers of Google
(“Google” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: GOOGL) breached their fiduciary
duties to the Company and its shareholders. If you are a Google
shareholder, you are encouraged to contact Haeggquist & Eck for
Haeggquist & Eck is investigating whether members of the Google Board
have breached their fiduciary duties by allowing pervasive governance
problems to exist at the Company, which has resulted in harm to the
Company from numerous lawsuits, negative publicity, and ongoing harm to
its employees and users. The investigation is specifically focused on:
(1) the numerous complaints of sexual misconduct and alleged cover-up at
the Company, including, most recently, The New York Times’
article on October 25, 2018 describing a culture at Google of cover-up
and generous gold parachutes for several senior executives who allegedly
committed sexual misconduct; (2) alleged rank-and-file harassment; (3)
alleged sex, age, and race discrimination at Google; and (4) alleged
violations of user privacy.
According to the Times, Google protected Andy Rubin, the “father
of Android,” after an employee accused him of coercing her into
performing oral sex in a hotel room. While Google could have fired Rubin
and paid him little to nothing, instead they praised him and gave him a
$90 million exit package, paid in installments of $2 million a month for
four years. Rubin is just one of three executives Google has protected
after accusations of sexual harassment, according to the Times.
