Workers at Riot Games in Los Angeles walk out over use of forced arbitration
Workers at Riot Games in Los Angeles organised a walk out over the company’s use of forced arbitration in lawsuits. There are currently five active lawsuits over workplace harassment, discrimination, and Equal Pay Act violations. Forced arbitration prevents workers having the right to a verdict from a jury or judge. 150 workers joined the protest, making it the largest walkout in the games industry so far. This follows Google ending forced arbitration after protests involving 20,000 workers.
