Google hears protesters, changes sexual harassment policies

(Reuters) - Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) Google said on Thursday it would make changes to how it handles sexual harassment claims, a week after thousands of its employees around the world walked off their jobs to protest its response to such issues. Google Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai announced a detailed "action plan", which included making arbitration optional for individual sexual harassment and sexual assault claims. "Going forward, we will provide more transparency on how we handle concerns," Pichai said in a note addressed to employees. Pichai also said Google will provide more details around sexual harassment investigations and outcomes, as well as improving processes used to handle such concerns, including the ability for its employees to be accompanied by a support person.
