The primary purpose of this case is to promote discussion related to effective human resource management practices in undergraduate business courses. This business case revolves around the issues of employment discrimination, retaliation, and gender inequality. In 2020, 38-year-old employee Chelsey Glasson sued Google, alleging that she and others encountered discrimination while pregnant. After facing retaliation from the company, Glasson decided to bring the issue to light. She claimed that managers would give lower performance scores to employees who notified the company they were pregnant, stating that this step in the employee’s life would hinder their performance towards the company.
