quelques notes sur le licenciement de 28 employé-e-s de Google

J’avais besoin de me faire une petite synthèse concernant le licenciement de 28 employé-e-s de Google car ce que je lisais partait dans tous les sens à grands coups de paniques autour de l’intelligence artificielle. Mon intention était de manifester quelques chemins que j’aimerais voir apparaître et de réfléchir en faisant des phrases. Cela peut toujours dépanner celleux qui regardent la chose de loin pour éviter quelques confusions.

Serious consequences for disruptive behavior


You may have seen reports of protests at some of our offices yesterday. Unfortunately, a number of employees brought the event into our buildings in New York and Sunnyvale. They took over office spaces, defaced our property, and physically impeded the work of other Googlers. Their behavior was unacceptable, extremely disruptive, and made coworkers feel threatened. We placed employees involved under investigation and cut their access to our systems. Those who refused to leave were arrested by law enforcement and removed from our offices.

Following investigation, today we terminated the employment of twenty-eight employees found to be involved. We will continue to investigate and take action as needed.

Behavior like this has no place in our workplace and we will not tolerate it. It clearly violates multiple policies that all employees must adhere to — including our Code of Conduct and Policy on Harassment, Discrimination, Retaliation, Standards of Conduct, and Workplace Concerns.

We are a place of business and every Googler is expected to read our policies and apply them to how they conduct themselves and communicate in our workplace. The overwhelming majority of our employees do the right thing. If you’re one of the few who are tempted to think we’re going to overlook conduct that violates our policies, think again. The company takes this extremely seriously, and we will continue to apply our longstanding policies to take action against disruptive behavior — up to and including termination.

You should expect to hear more from leaders about standards of behavior and discourse in the workplace.
