Former PlayStation Employee Sues Sony For Discrimination

A for­mer PlaySta­tion employ­ee has filed a law­suit against the com­pa­ny for gen­der dis­crim­i­na­tion and wrong­ful ter­mi­na­tion. For­mer IT secu­ri­ty ana­lyst Emma Majo alleged in her suit that the com­pa­ny ter­mi­nat­ed her for speak­ing out regard­ing dis­crim­i­na­tion against women with­in the company.

As report­ed by Axios, Majo’s law­suit alleges that Son­ly vio­lat­ed the Unit­ed States’ Equal Pay Act, say­ing, “Sony dis­crim­i­nates against female employ­ees, includ­ing those who are female and those who iden­ti­fy as female, in com­pen­sa­tion and pro­mo­tion and sub­jects them to a work cul­ture pre­dom­i­nat­ed by men.”

Majo added she was reg­u­lar­ly ignored by a man­ag­er who only responds to men, as well as con­tin­u­al­ly being passed over for pro­mo­tions. She also said she was fired after sub­mit­ting a gen­der bias com­plaint. The law­suit says she was let go from Sony because of the clo­sure of an inter­nal depart­ment, but accord­ing to her, she was not part of that depart­ment. The law­suit also alleges that women strug­gle to get promoted.

Majo asked the court to expand the law­suit to a class action on behalf of the women who have worked at Sony. This is just anoth­er gam­ing com­pa­ny that has had some form of dis­crim­i­na­tion law­suit pop up, includ­ing Activi­sion Bliz­zard–who are still deal­ing with the fallout.
