The class-action lawsuit was brought in after blockbuster reports about sexism and abuse at Riot’s workplace. The settlement has been approved by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing and will award $80 million of the $100 million to female employees and contractors at the company and the remaining $20 million to for legal fees and others. Riot must also set aside $6 million a year for three years to adjust wages and create new positions for the contractors involved in the class action.

In a statement, Riot tries to show remorse for the past and move forward: “While we’re proud of how far we’ve come since 2018, we also have to take responsibility. responsibility for the past”. “We hope that this agreement will properly acknowledge those who have had negative experiences at Riot and demonstrate our desire to lead the way in bringing about greater accountability and equality. for the game industry.”

In the end, it’s good that both sides have reached an appropriate resolution, not only for the women who were wronged at the company, but also for the people who are watching what the company does. Riot Games still do popular game, so it’s responsible for doing its best so that toxic workplaces have fewer places to hide. Let’s hope that Activision Blizzard and Ubisoft follow.
