USA: PlayStation is facing a gender discrimination lawsuit; co. did not comment

"PlayStation is facing a gender discrimination lawsuit," 23 Nov. 2021

PlayStation has been hit with a lawsuit that alleges gender discrimination and wrongful termination, as first reported by Axios. According to the details of the lawsuit, former IT security analyst Emma Majo is seeking to establish a class action suit to represent other women who might’ve been affected by PlayStation’s alleged gender discrimination. The lawsuit claims that “Sony tolerates and cultivates a work environment that discriminates against female employees,” alleging that women were denied promotions and weren’t paid equally to male workers who held similar positions.

... The Verge reached out to Sony with a request for comment but didn’t immediately hear back.
