Riot Games employees hold walkout protest over forced arbitration of recent lawsuits

Yesterday, over 150 employees walked out of Riot Games’ offices in Los Angeles to hold a “down tools”-style protest over the League of Legends publishers handling of recent discrimination lawsuits. The protest was also directed at the company’s alleged culture of sexism in the workplace, which came to the forefront following an investigation by Kotaku’s Cecilia D’Anastasio back in August 2018.

Following the Kotaku report, a number of employees filed suit against Riot Games. The publisher then filed a motion to place two of these cases into Forced Arbitration, essentially preventing them from ever appearing before a jury, or allowing the plaintiffs to appeal on the given result. Essentially, by being an employee of the company, you waive your right to take any case with your employer to court.
