According to The Washington Post, a California Supreme Court judge ruled that Google employee privacy agreements violate state labor laws.
The internet company originally convinced the judge to overturn most of the worker’s claims, believing that federal law override California legislation. An appeals court overturned that decision and said state laws did more to protect free speech rights, including work experience, and Google declined to comment on the ruling or any plans to appeal.
The result would not allow Google employees to discuss trade secrets if supported, however it would allow people to discuss work experience, could make it easier for job seekers to switch roles without fear of lawsuits, and also provide more opportunities for victims of sexual assault and harassment to discuss their reasons for leaving the company. Although California legislation has already addressed nondisclosure agreements that prevent victims from speaking out about accidents.
The ruling could also have broader ramifications for Californias tech sector. QH law partner Ramzi Hanafi told The Post that many big tech companies have similar anti-publication rules, and Silicon Valley companies may have to renew their agreements and accept that it will be easier for Employees then leave or learn about toxic work cultures.
