The maker of Call of Duty, World of Warcraft andother popular video games still faces suits filed by additional formeremployees, the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), andshareholders accusing the company of widespread sex discrimination.Fischer on Tuesday also rejected a renewed effort tointervene in the case by the DFEH, which filed its own suit against Activisionmonths before the EEOC and argued the settlement could hurt its own case.EEOC spokeswoman Nicole St Germain said the agency waspleased that Fischer said she would approve the settlement. She said that inaddition to the payout, the deal requires Activision to take steps to preventand address discrimination, harassment and retaliation.In a 2021 complaint, the EEOC had accusedActivision of failing to take corrective and preventive measures on sexualharassment complaints, discriminating against women in pay and promotions, anddiscriminating against pregnant workers. Activision denied violating anti-biaslaws, but has said it will make changes to how itaddresses workplace complaints.Jahan Sagafi of Outten & Golden, who represents DFEH,told Fischer on Tuesday that federal law requires the EEOC to defer to stateagencies, and that the commission lacked the authority to sue Activisionbecause DFEH had filed its own case.Fischer in December rejected DFEH’s initial motion tointervene in the case, and the agency has asked the ninth US circuit court ofappeals to reverse that ruling. The ninth circuit on Monday denied DFEH’smotion to stay the district court proceedings pending the outcome of theappeal.On Tuesday, Fischer told Sagafi that his new argument wasuntimely, and unnecessary because of the pending appeal. Instead claimants willbe required to opt-in to receive compensation from the EEOC settlement, and indoing so will waive their right to participate in the DFEH suit.Activision did not immediately respond to a request forcomment. Nor did DFEH. Last week, another anonymous employee came forward withnew allegations against the company and in August 2021 a group of shareholders filed suit against the company over itshandling of the crisis.… we have a small favour toask.
