French union Solidaires Informatique has filed a class action lawsuit against Ubisoft. The statement said that the company’s management ignored the sexual harassment, and the personnel department covered the culprits.
The union announced the preparation of the document last year, when a bunch of accusations fell in the direction of high-ranking members of Ubisoft. Solidaires Informatique encourages all injured employees to join the lawsuit, promising them complete confidentiality and coverage of all financial costs during the trial.
The main objectives of the lawsuit were:
- CEO Yves Guillemot
- Chief Creative Officer Serge Ascoet
- Head of Human Resources Cecile Cornet
- Tommy François Editorial Officer
François left the company after the completion of an internal investigation, and Cecile Cornet left in March. A Ubisoft spokesman said that after the initial complaints, the studio environment had “significantly” improved.
