California Files a Civil Suit Against Activision Blizzard Over Sexual Harassment, Gender Discrimination, and Pay Inequality

California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing filed a civil lawsuit Tuesday against one of America’s largest video game developers Activision Blizzard, alleging multiple female employees were subjected to gender discrimination, sexual harassment, and unequal pay.

“DFEH alleges that women were subjected to constant sexual harassment, including groping, comments, and advances,” the state agency said in a press release. “The lawsuit also alleges that the company’s executives and human resources personnel knew of the harassment and failed to take reasonable steps to prevent the unlawful conduct, and instead retaliated against women who complained.”
A spokesperson for Activision Blizzard (ATVI), the company known for creating popular games including “Call of Duty” and “World of Warcraft,” told CNN they are taking the allegations seriously and have launched internal investigations for all claims.
