A very popular video game company settled a class action sexual discrimination lawsuit from hundreds of current and former female employees by agreeing to pay them $10 million. The proposed settlement will reportedly affect nearly 1,000 woman who worked at Riot Games from November 2014 until the date the settlement is finalise, with exact payouts being determined by length of employment and status as either a full-time or contract worker.
Riot revealed in August that the two sides had agreed to a settlement, but the billion-dollar company did not divulge the amount. The approximately 1,000 female-identifying employees who worked at Riot between November 2014 and the time the settlement is complete will be eligible to receive a part of the settlement.
Asked about the settlement, a Riot spokesperson said in a statement: "We're pleased to have a proposed settlement to fully resolve the class action lawsuit". At the time, Riot said it could not share the details of the settlement until it had been reviewed and approved by the court.
