A class action has been filed in California court to investigate the treatment of women at PlayStation in recent years.
Discrimination cases no longer stop with the biggest video game studios. While Bobby Kotick, the boss of Activision-Blizzard is in the hot seat and dropped by the main manufacturers, the year 2021 also saw business on the side of Riot Games or Ubisoft.
It would now be the turn of the Japanese giant Sony to be the subject of a complaint. The manufacturer of the PlayStation is targeted by a complaint filed in California by a former security analyst of the group. According to the site Axio, the complainant Emma Majo wants to bring a collective action to represent all the women who have been discriminated against since 2015.
According to this former employee, the group offers lower remuneration and fewer promotions to women in the company, taking as an example several personal cases. An accusation that comes as Jim Ryan recently pointed out the actions of Activision-Blizzard in terms of equality.
The Japanese group has not commented on this matter for the moment. The lawsuit filed in California court can be found here.
