Activision Harassment Probe From SEC Ups Risk to Top Executives (Bloomberg Law)
The gaming industry has many allegations of harassment against it and this lawsuit will be a wake up call to the companies who aren’t protecting their workers.
Dr. Olivarius tells Bloomberg Law:
“The SEC getting involved is extraordinary,” said Ann Olivarius, a senior partner at McAllister Olivarius. “This is a very serious thing for Activision. It’s a hugely expensive situation for the company.”
The Securities and Exchange Commission’s investigation of Activision Blizzard Inc. is certain to multiply the legal challenges for the video-game giant, in particular its senior executives, over claims of sexual harassment and discrimination, and how they handled those allegations, according to experts.
