<span class="articleLocation”>The U.S. Department of Labor said on Wednesday
it filed a lawsuit against Alphabet Inc’s Google unit
seeking access to the company’s compensation data and documents
as part of a routine compliance evaluation.

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP)
said it had sought the data about the company’s equal
opportunity program in September 2015. The company failed to
submit despite many opportunities, the OFCCP said.

As a federal contractor, Google must agree to permit the
federal government to inspect and copy records and information
relevant to its compliance with the equal employment laws
administered by OFCCP.

The company has provided hundreds of thousands of records
over the last year to comply with the OFCCP’s current audit, a
Google spokesperson told Reuters.

“However, the handful of OFCCP requests that are the subject
of the complaint are overbroad in scope, or reveal confidential
data, and we’ve made this clear to the OFCCP, to no avail,” the
spokesperson said.

The OFCCP said it would ask the court to cancel all of
Google’s current government contracts and to debar the company
from entering into future contracts if it failed to comply.
