Google employees, who walked off the job to protest the internet company's lenient treatment of executives accused of sexual misconduct, leave after attending a protest rally on Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018, in NY.

At the conference that was conducted around the same time walkouts were held globally by Google employees, Pichai said, "We don't run the company by referendum".

A Google employee walks past a logo outside the entrance to the company's offices in Berlin, Germany in 2013. The report claimed Google gave Rubin a $90 million exit package, which sparked a slew of outrage.

Rubin said the Times' report was inaccurate in a pair of statements on Twitter and denied the allegations, which he called a "smear campaign".

Hundreds of Google engineers and other employees began walking out of their offices Thursday morning starting in Asia and Europe. "Most have not been told". Google, a unit of Alphabet Inc., says it doesn't offer payouts to people it fires for sexual harassment anymore.

Sundar Pichai, Google's Chief Executive, said in an email to the employees, 'I understand the anger and disappointment that many of you feel.

More than 1,500 workers, a lot of them women, plan to join the walkout, according to The New York Times."Google's famous for its culture". Tech news site The Information previously reported that Google had investigated Rubin for an inappropriate relationship while at the company.

The protests are set to continue in USA offices after 11 a.m. local time in each location.
