James Damore, the Google engineer who was fired Monday for violating the company’s code of conduct in an internal memo on diversity, has filed a complaint against his former employer with the NLRB.

It is unclear what the complaint says. The filing on the NLRB website only lists Damore’s legal representation from the law firm Paul Hastings LLP.

Damore told Reuters and The New York Times Monday night that he planned to file a complaint with the NLRB that would accuse Google’s management of trying to silence him.

Damore’s manifesto, which went viral over the weekend and stirred passions on both sides of the political spectrum, accused Google of alienating conservatives at the company and attributed the lack of diversity to biological differences between men and women.

Damore did not respond to several emails requesting comment Tuesday. Google has declined to comment on the situation beyond the memo CEO Sundar Pichai sent employees Monday night.
