A former security analyst, at work for Sony PlayStation, did cause to society for gender discrimination and unlawful dismissal.
After what happened in the ranks of Activision Blizzard, under the crosshairs of public opinion for allegations of sexual harassment, wage gap and discrimination for pregnant women, even the Sony home is now at the center of a scandal in the gaming world.
The former analyst Emma Majo has, in fact, filed a lawsuit against the company with the California court, denouncing a violation ofEqual Pay Act, aimed at avoiding the unfair difference in wages between men and women currently in force in the United States.
Sony discriminates against female employees, both female and self-identifying, in salary and promotions, and subjects them to a male-dominated work culture.
The former employee claims that he received intolerable treatment from a manager, who would have it ignored and penalized in favor of male colleagues. Following filing of an official complaint, Sony PlayStation would have it fired without another valid reason. Emma Majo claims that she is not the only one to have undergone such treatment, and that her former colleagues often have to endure discrimination and injustice in the workplace.
A former PlayStation security analyst is suing the company in California for wrongful termination and gender discrimination.

Following the lawsuit, Sony argued that the reason for the dismissal was the closure of an entire department, of which however Emma was not part. Criticizing the man-dominated culture, the former Sony PlayStation employee is now initiating a Class Action in favor of women, to try to put an end to all gender inequality.
His intentions are to contact the Private Attorney General Act of California, which allows citizens to sue companies if they fail to comply with labor and workers’ protection laws.
Meanwhile, a group of shareholders has called for the resignation of the CEO of Activion Blizzard, Bobby Kotick, following the workplace harassment scandal. It would seem, in fact, that he himself was not only aware of the hell that was lived in the company, but that he was personally involved in it.
Furthermore Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, made important statements. It seems the man is considering cutting off relations with the company.
