Riot Games resolves to pay $10M to settle gender discrimination lawsuit
Riot Games has agreed to pay $10 million to its former and current female employees who alleged they’d been subjected to gender discrimination and sexual harassment. The company, which became emblematic of a larger problem within the industry, says this is part of its commitment to fix its culture.
According to the Los Angeles Times, which first reported on the terms of the settlement, each of the roughly 1,000 female-identifying employees who have worked at Riot within the last five years will be entitled to a portion of the $10 million. The amount will vary depending on the length of employment and whether they were full-time or contract workers.
