Google's parent company, Alphabet, has reached an out-of-court settlement to end lawsuits over mismanaging sexual harassment claims, agreeing to a series of new measures to prevent sexual misconduct and committing $310 million to promote corporate diversity and inclusion.

Alphabet filed the settlement on Friday in California Superior Court and said it would now allow Google employees to discuss facts of their sexual harassment cases publicly. EFE-EPA
