Google faces US Government Contract Ban


Google could be barred from doing business with US federal government unless it gives away confidential information about thousands of its employees.

The Labour department filed a lawsuit on Wednesday with the Office of Administrative Law Judges, alleging Google of repeatedly refusing to provide details of compensation given to employees by the internet giant and other related information as part of an audit designed to ensure the company isn’t discriminating against employ’s gender or race.

Google has several active deals with federal government agencies, including a digital advertising agreement as cited by the Labour department in its lawsuit, which it claims has generated more than $600,000 for the company since June 2014.

The Labour department wants a legal order that will void all the company’s agreements with federal government, if Google fails to comply.
