    Once it becomes public it becomes a matter of public relations and gets a public relations solution. The corporation must come first and if the actions of an individual harms the corporation they have done something wrong.

    Just as scientific research always seems to publish results that suit their funders and attract more funding.

    Not that there is anything wrong with that, of course. The fella is just doing his job.

    Someone within Google must have asked for that memo to be produced imo

    Well, I guess the question is whether he was sacked or paid off. Legal would have gone through each line of that memo and been consulted on the possibility of being sued. If he was sacked, they must believe that there is enough evidence to back their case. Paying off is always the easy option with little or no comeback but this bloke leaving effectively brings the whole topic to a close.

    Ha! I should've remembered; fiction has to make sense, unlike the truth.

    sacked? paid off? same thing, he's out of the job.

    He's not been banned from working. He will find another job, if he wants.

    It does rather soften the blow if he's walking off with a cheque for $200k in his back pocket, though.

    Definitely not the same thing

    of course it is. You are removing someone from their role.

    Whether it is dismissal with or without notice or via a settlement agreement, the end result is the same. Paying someone off is a commercial decision made to reduce financial and/or reputational risk to the organisation.

    Many football managers are referred to as 'sacked', when in fact, they have been paid the value of the remainder of their contract.
