Google's response

Author: Google, Published on: 28 October 2019

While our suppliers determine wages and benefits for their employees, we want working at Google to be a positive experience. We choose our partners and staffing agencies carefully, and review their compliance with our Supplier Code of Conduct. In a workplace of our size, not everything goes right all the time. We absolutely want to hear about and address any instances of inappropriate conduct. That’s why we give our extended workforce access to the same helpline as Google employees to report concerns, including the option to report anonymously. And that’s why we deploy a specialised team to investigate potential violations and take action.
