As each federated state in the United States, California has its own political regime, based on a constitution and a governor. The state of California is a republic divided into three branches of government, the Executive Branch comprising the governor of California and his firm, the legislative branch including the Assembly of the State and the Senate, and the judicial branch consisting of a court. supreme and other lower courts. Since the beginning of the twentieth century, California also follows a tradition of direct democracy, illustrated by the frequent use of the referendum of popular initiative (among the best known proposals, numbers 8, 13, 19 and 218) and the use In 2003 of the reminder procedure against Governor Gray Davis. In the presidential elections and for the US Senate a Bastion of the Democratic Party - George HW Bush is the last Republican to win California in a presidential election, in 1988 - although more shared at the local level (in his state legislature and the United States House of Representatives). At the federal level, like every other state, it has two senators at the United States Congress, accompanied by fifty-three representatives, more than any other state, because of the strong California population.

Towards the end of July 2021, it became known that the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) was determined against Activision Blizzard and filed a lawsuit. Serious allegations of discrimination and misogynia, sexual harassment, alcohol abuse and rape were collected. Since then, a lot has happened. Employees of Blizzard Entertainment and Activision protested against those that such an unacceptable behavior was tolerated by decades without serious consequences.

Various staff at Blizzard had to clear their workplace or went by themselves - at the point is never 100 percent, who was now involved in the processes described by those described by those described by those described by those described by those described by those. And in wow the large inclusion wave grabs around; Hardly a stone stays on the other when it comes to making content of the MMOS of the whole of socially acceptable.

Accordingly, 20 employees were released in order to improve the corporate culture at Activision Blizzard according to the allegations of sex-specific discrimination and harassment.

Furthermore, 20 more employees have received a warning, while the internal team for ethics and compliance has been expanded. This is from a letter to the workforce, which has received the employee of Activision Blizzard on Tuesday (19.10.2021). On the authors of Financial Times, Townsend explained that there are several game developers and some supervisors, and added that none of the dismissals from the board or the management of the company.

There should be no differences

It does not matter which rank the staff has or what job he exercises, Townsend is quoted. If someone has committed a kind of misconduct or is a manager who tolerates a culture that does not match our values, we will take action. The impact on the business does not matter. However, differences are made in the severity of misconduct; Whether it was about repeated processes or unique incidents.

The majority of cases of misconduct would not have taken place in the offices, but on events and influencing alcohol - but this is no excuse to pursue the incidents because they influence the workplace. That s why we say that we have to tackle this problem, says Townsend.

And the demands of the employees?

As mentioned earlier, employees of Activision Blizzard have protested after the allegations against the predominant corporate culture, while creating a letter, which has to improve. Not all of the four claims of the workforce have been fulfilled so far, such as transparent communication with regard to the gender equality in salary payments.

It is aware of this in the leadership of Activision Blizzard and more changes would come. Kotick and the board have basically exhibited me a blank check, says Townsend. The complete report can be found at Financial Times, but behind the payment barrier.
