Let's go talk about the Activision Blizzard case and all the repercussions that have been affecting the colossus since the appearance of the lawsuit started last July by the Californian DFEH. This week, the company was brought to the courtroom by EEOC US Equal Opportunity Commission.
The bases of this lawsuit are based on the various allegations of harassment, mistreatment e gender disparity documented over and over over the past few months. In particular, the EEOC has particularly focused on testimonies from some women who denounce practices they foresee lower payouts and missed promotions of pregnant employees.
According to what was communicated by the EEOC, the institution had already tried to discuss with Activision on the matter, without however receiving any feedback and therefore leading it to open the legal case. However, the two sides have already found an agreement, with Activision having to pay $ 18 million in compensation, to offer financial compensation to "Who will have the right".
Another cold shower for the company, which already last week found itself in the eye of the storm after various management figures, including CEO Bobby Kotick, found themselves sued by Securities and Exchange Commission.
