Class action litigation may stem from "bro-culture" accusations

Businesses often face allegations of one sort or another. In some cases, customers may not feel satisfied with a product or service, and in other instances, workers may feel that their Florida employers have violated their rights or created hostile work environments. When multiple people feel affected, class action litigation could take place.

One out-of-state business will likely soon be defending against allegations after a recent class action lawsuit was filed against the company. Reports stated that Riot Games is facing allegations from two women -- one a current employee and one a former employee -- claiming that "bro-culture" in the workplace resulted in gender discrimination and harassment. The women claim that they were subjected to unsolicited explicit photos as well as criticisms over their appearances and were often passed over for promotion in favor of less-qualified male workers.

The company made a statement indicating that it could not comment on pending litigation but that the claims are being taken seriously. They also stated that they have been making efforts to combat discrimination and sexism in the workplace, including having outside consultants work to redefine company culture. At the time of the report, the court had not yet certified the class-action status of the case.

Class action litigation can have tremendous impacts on businesses. If Florida companies find themselves facing this type of legal action, they will undoubtedly want to find the best ways to handle their predicaments. Reviewing their options with their legal counsel may allow them to ensure that they handle their cases effectively.
