Activision Blizzard is accused of violating the labor rights of its employees

After several lawsuits, a new severe case for Activision Blizzard emerges, which, after previously being accused of discriminating against its employees, is now being sued by those same employees.

The new practice was started by ABABK, a group of individuals from a well-known publisher that was formed specifically to address the work environment that has generated such a stir in recent weeks.

The latest claims, which are detailed in a paper prepared in collaboration with the National Council on Labor Relations, center on Activision’s continued mistreatment of its employees and their rights as workers. Specifically, the administration of the Call of Duty and World of Warcraft behemoth has been accused of spying on workers, interrogating them, and issuing forceful comments.

This will, of course, make things much more difficult for Activision Blizzard’s management, which has already begun to lose pieces in the context of the initial allegations. Several layoffs are taking place, including that of J. Allen Brack, Blizzard’s previous president, and Luis Barriga and Jesse McCree, Diablo 4’s former director and lead designer, respectively.

To add fuel to the fire, the California State Department’s Fair Employment and Housing Considerate has accused Activision of concealing evidence, coercing victims, and destroying evidence against them, an incredibly severe crime that, if found true, may cause the firm catastrophic harm.
