Google doesn’t underpay its female employees but it could have a different problem with women



The US Department of Labour says that Google appears to systematically underpay women and that it has seen “compelling evidence” of “very significant discrimination against women,” Janette Wipper, a DoL regional director, testified in a San Francisco court on Friday, according to The Guardian.

But Google says it does no such thing and has the data to prove it (though it hasn’t released any of that data). Google conducts an annual analysis of pay equality that is “extremely scientific and robust” and gender “blind,” Google’s vice president of people operations, Eileen Naughton, wrote in a blog post Tuesday. Naughton says that if the analysis finds that a demographic group, like women, are being underpaid, it adjusts their pay accordingly.

At first glance, it would seem that if one of them is telling the truth, the other can’t be. But they could both be right, according to analysis of Google’s pay between women and men done by Glassdoor’s Chief Economist, Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, who shared its research with Business Insider.
