About the Lawsuit
On July 20, 2021, the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing filed a lawsuit against the Company alleging violations of the state’s Equal Pay Act as well as the Fair Employment and Housing Act based on disturbing incidents of sexual harassment and assault. On July 27, 2021, Bloomberg reported that thousands of current and former employees of the Company had signed a petition in protest of the Company’s “abhorrent and insulting” response to the lawsuit and had planned walkout and work stoppage the following day, resulting in the Company’s CEO sending a letter to employees apologizing for the Company’s “tone deaf” response to the DFEH lawsuit and promising “swift action to be [. . .] compassionate[,] caring [and] to ensure a safe environment.”
On this news, shares of Activision fell $5.89, or over 6%, to close at $84.05 on July 27, 2021, on unusually heavy trading volume.
The case is Cheng v. Activision Blizzard, Inc., et al., No. 1:21-cv-06240.
