We have so far concluded individual investigations that resulted in the termination of employment for 28 employees, and will continue to investigate and take action as needed, Google spokesperson, via statement. No Tech for Apartheid claims that the workers were fired "indiscriminately.". This excuse to avoid confronting us and our concerns directly, and attempt to justify its illegal, retaliatory firings, is a lie, No Tech for Apartheid, via statement.
