Los Angeles Times reports that Riot Games will pay out $10 million collectively to women who worked in the company since 2014 to settle the gender discrimination lawsuit started in November 2018. The final amount each employee will receive will vary based on how long they worked for Riot.
The settlement filing also lays out a number of commitments Riot has made to improve its company culture, including beefing up internal programs for reporting sexual harassment and discrimination. They include undertaking a review of all pay, promotion and hiring practices to increase fairness and transparency, hiring a dedicated chief diversity officer, and creating a number of employee groups empowered to track the company’s progress on these fronts.
