Riot to pay $10 million in gender discrimination lawsuit settlement

Riot to pay $10 million in gender discrimination lawsuit settlement

The League of Legends developer will be paying every female employee that has worked under then in the last five years.

Riot Games, publisher of League of Legends, will pay at least $10 million as part of the settlement in a class action lawsuit on gender-based discrimination.

"We are pleased that a proposed settlement to fully resolve the class-action lawsuit against Riot was filed recently by plaintiffs' counsel", Riot Games Corporate Communications Lead Joe Hixson added in a separate statement. They could not show any details at that time, but this time it seems the matter has come to light.

The company and the plaintiffs have agreed to the settlement, which should be approved by the court. The studio has employed 1,000 women since that time, but full-time employees will receive a bigger chunk than outside contractors. Rosen Saba has represented the plaintiffs since the class-action lawsuit was filed on November 5, 2018.

Riot Games has settled the gender discrimination lawsuit employees had filed against it a year ago.

In May, hundreds of employees walked out of the company in protest how they were handling sexual harassment lawsuits and claims. The company has worked hard over the past year to address the culture of sexism, creating a new recruitment, hiring and promotion structure, bringing in third-party culture consusltants and creating a new diversity director role, as well as adding women in leadership roles.

Riot Games were accused of an internal culture that promoted severe misconduct in the workplace as well as gender discrimination.

Riot Games has announced that global music superstar Jason Derulo will headline the closing night of its three-day festival, The Nexus, on Riyadh Boulevard. Following the Google walkout, the company agreed to do away with forced arbitration entirely. On April 24, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of larger companies, stating that employees are not entitled to class-action lawsuits when consent is written into an employee contract.
