Inside Google exec’s ‘groping and retaliation’ clams against director


A former Google executive claims he was fired after being groped by one of the company’s female employees, according to a lawsuit.

Ryan Olohan has alleged in court docs that Google employee Tiffany Miller went on to repeatedly harass him in the wake of the incident and worked to get him fired.

Google exec's 'groping and retaliation

In November, Olohan filed a lawsuit against Miller and Google in New York City.

The filing claims Olohan — who had seniority over Miller, a mid-level employee — is a victim of “sexual harassment, gender discrimination, race discrimination, and retaliation.”

Olohan was Google’s managing director of Google’s food, beverage and restaurants while Miller was the director of programmatic media for consumer, government and entertainment.

She now directs the company’s agency partnerships.

A spokesperson for Miller called the lawsuit a “fictional account of events” and described Olohan as a “disgruntled ex-employee.”

They claimed that Miller never made a sexual advance on Olohan, something the spokesperson says can be corroborated by witnesses.

The situation reportedly began at a Google work event in December 2019 where some employees were allegedly drinking heavily.

“Miller approached Olohan and rubbed his stomach,” the lawsuit claims.

It also alleges that she told Olohan he has “such a nice body,” that her marriage lacked “spice,” and that she knew Olohan liked Asian women.

Miller and Olohan’s wife are both of Asian descent.

“Miller’s behavior made Olohan extremely uncomfortable, and he immediately removed himself from the situation,” the suit says.

“Later that night, when Olohan suggested to coworkers that Miller may have had too much to drink, he was informed that her behavior was ‘Tiffany just being Tiffany.'”

The suit claims Olohan reported the incident to a Google human resources representative the week after the dinner but that no action was taken.

At the time, the suit claims the representative admitted Miller would often drink to excess and that the complaint would be treated more seriously if Olohan wasn’t a white man.

“If the complaint was ‘in reverse’ — a female accusing a white male of harassment — (it) would certainly be escalated,” Olohan was told, the lawsuit claims.

Later, the suit claims Miller “retaliated” by accusing Olohan of committing “microaggressions.”

A human resources representative allegedly told Olohan he hadn’t done anything wrong and that Miller was “being petty.”

The lawsuit also claims Miller “drunkenly rebuked” Olohan at another work event in December 2021.

Other employees allegedly reported the incident to the human resources department. Miller ended up apologizing to Olohan and admitting that she was “very drunk,” the suit claims.

“Although Google was aware that Miller’s continued harassment of Olohan stemmed from his rejection of her sexual advances, it again took no action.”

After that, Miller allegedly conspired with another employee to report Olohan to the human resources department for not being “inclusive” enough.

In February 2022, a representative from the department told Olohan that there were “obviously too many white guys” on his team, the suit claims.

Two months later, Miller allegedly became “visibly intoxicated” at another work event and berated Olohan in front of their co-workers again.

This happened before human resources representatives encouraged Olohan to only fill vacant positions on his team with female hires in July 2022, the suit claims.

He was also allegedly encouraged to fire a male employee and replace him with a woman.

Olohan was fired in August, the suit says.

“(He) was informed that his employment had been terminated because he was not ‘inclusive,'” the lawsuit claims.

“In response to Olohan’s request during the call for specifics as to why Google believed he was not inclusive, Google’s Employee Investigations team explained that he had shown favoritism towards high performers, which it considered ‘non-inclusive,’ and commented on employees’ walking pace and hustle, which it considered ‘ableist.'”

Google, Olohan, and Olohan’s attorney did not immediately respond to The U.S. Sun’s requests for comment.
