Google Inc. was accused in a class-action lawsuit of systematically paying male employees more than their female counterparts, adding the internet giant to a growing list of technology companies sued for gender discrimination.

Three women who worked at Google in recent years sued Thursday in San Francisco Superior Court alleging the company pays women less than men for equal or similar work. They also say it puts women on career paths with lower pay ceilings.
