Google called the lawsuit “baseless” and said it would fight it vigorously.
“We’re very committed to an open internal culture, which means we frequently share with employees details of product launches and confidential business information,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement. “Transparency is a huge part of our culture. Our employee confidentiality requirements are designed to protect proprietary business information, while not preventing employees from disclosing information about terms and conditions of employment, or workplace concerns.”
