U.S. game company Activision Blizzard was sued by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing earlier this weekProsecute, The agency claimed that after a two-year investigation, it found that Activision Blizzard has cultivated a “fraternal” culture within the company. Female employees continue to be sexually harassed in the workplace, but the company’s leadership has failed to take appropriate measures to allow such harassment. The situation keeps happening.
According to a report by the US financial media “Bloomberg”, Activision Blizzard is full of gender-unfair culture and phenomena. It restricts women in terms of employment conditions in terms of salary, distribution and dismissal. It has also received complaints that female employees may be pregnant. They were unable to be promoted or even kicked out of the breastfeeding room-just to allow male colleagues to have meetings inside.
According to the content of the lawsuit filed by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, female employees account for only 20% of Activision Blizzard’s total number of employees, and women working in them are also violated by the internal “fraternity” culture. In the “cube crawls” event, male employees would drink a lot of alcohol and crawl between several desk cubicles, and act inappropriately towards female employees.
The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing even accused male employees of playing games during working hours, delegating work to female employees, and openly talking about pornographic jokes and rape and other chats on occasions where female employees are also present.
Activision Blizzard’s speech system is also in a copyPublic statementIt stated that, including Activision Blizzard, no company or industry can tolerate any form of sexual misconduct or harassment. “We take every allegation seriously and investigate all claims. In cases related to misconduct China has taken action and solved the problem.”
Activision Blizzard also hit back at the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, saying that some of Activision Blizzard’s past distorted accusations were in many cases mischaracterized, “The picture described by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing is not the Blizzard workplace today.” In the past few years, since the internal investigation was launched, they have made major changes to reform the company culture. They also stated that for many years, employees have received anti-harassment training, and Activision Blizzard has established a confidential reporting hotline and team to investigate employees.
