It has been a few days since we last heard about the toxic work atmosphere that female workers had at Activision Blizzard, and now we have the info that a new lawsuit has emerged against the company.
The well-known company was described to have a “frat boy” environment where female employees were constantly harassed by male employees. The latest employee to have filed a lawsuit has said that she was pressured to drink alcohol, was constantly groped by male co-workers and was not heard when she went to her supervisors to inform them of what was happening to her.
Once she took it to the former Blizzard president, J. Allen Brack, all she got was a lower-playing role, and it was just because she wanted to feel safe in her workspace. In the lawsuit, filed by Lisa Bloom, the attorney of the woman that wished to remain anonymous, they seek many court orders, among which is the firing of Bobby Kotick, the CEO of Activision Blizzard.
This lawsuit has not been the first and will certainly not be the last legal activity taken against the company, but we hope that the working situation will improve once Microsoft takes over. As we have also heard, and many others too, the deal between Microsoft and Activision Blizzard includes Kotick leaving the company once Microsoft acquires the scandalous company.
