As a whistleblower company, ReZolveX would like to address the recent settlement between Activision Blizzard and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) regarding allegations of a toxic workplace culture. This settlement highlights the importance of implementing effective reporting systems for employees to report harassment and discrimination anonymously.
Law And Regulation Regarding Activision Blizzard
According to court documents filed on Monday, the EEOC had filed a lawsuit against Activision Blizzard, accusing the company of failing to take effective action after employees complained about sexual harassment, discriminating against employees who were pregnant, and retaliating against employees who spoke out, including firing them. This lawsuit is the culmination of a nearly three-year investigation into Activision Blizzard’s workplace culture.
As a result of this settlement, Activision Blizzard has agreed to create an $18 million fund to compensate people who were harassed or discriminated against. The company will also upgrade its policies and training on harassment and discrimination and hire an independent consultant to oversee its compliance with the EEOC’s conditions. The agreement is subject to court approval and will be in effect for three years.
