Activision Blizzard Fires 20 Employees, Reprimands 20 More Following Sexual Harassment Allegations

It would appear at least some progress is being made regarding the sexual harassment complaints at Activision Blizzard. According to a report in the Financial Times, the company sent a letter to staff earlier today stating that it has fired 20 employees as a result of their own months-long investigation that uncovered “misconduct across several parts of the business”.

The story is too old to be commented.

I doubt they are doing this with the staff safe in mind. Probably still people who should be fired. And other people that are fired who shouldn't. They're not worried about anyone but the money.

Exactly. They followed the NFL model: fire someone to protect someone else.

I guess my concern is whether you can even trust management to do this fairly and correctly. If you couldn't trust them with proper conduct in the workplace why would you entrust the power to take action over misconduct.

Seems pretty clear to me. They could continue misusing this power and instead of dealing with the serious issues they may just be looking for scapegoats.
