Activision Blizzard, Inc. (ATVI) Accused of Sexual Harassment Against Female Employees
After a two-year investigation, the California Dept. of Fair Employment and Housing filed a lawsuit against the Company alleging a “pervasive frat boy workplace culture.” The agency found that the Company discriminated against female employees in terms of conditions of employment, including compensation, assignment, promotion, and termination and consistently failed to take steps to prevent discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. In response, nearly 1,000 current and former Activision employees have signed a letter calling the Company’s responses to the lawsuit “abhorrent and insulting,” and dozens of current and former employees have come out on social media to share their own allegations of discrimination. Additionally, several gaming outlets have halted coverage of any games released by the Company.
