In 2018, reports of sexual harassment began to emerge within the central offices of Ubisoft, but unfortunately, the case went largely unnoticed. Those involved claim to have carried out all the corresponding procedures for this type of situation, but years later, the French company did nothing about it, thus forcing the victims to have no other choice but to resign.
In the middle of this year another of these cases arose, but this time, it was in Ubisoft Singapore. This aroused many alerts among different personalities of the medium, who began to question exactly what was happening within Ubisoft. Given this, the company issued a statement assuring that they had already hired new experts on the subject, in addition to that they had recruited an external firm, Relais Expert Conseil, to review and work on worker complaints. Well, it seems like this didn’t really have much of an impact.
Several of these workers, who preferred to remain anonymous, reported to Kotaku that despite all these commitments, Ubisoft continues to ignore and ignore many of the current complaints. Here are a couple of testimonials.
“I testified directly about a case that one of my co-workers had previously reported, and I never heard from it again, they didn’t write to me again, or anything.”
“I was fetishized by my race. Not only were they late for my appointment, but they never followed up properly on my case. “
Other workers also report cases of discriminatory salaries, unfair promotions, and as with previous reports, they ensure that the administration of Ubisoft is not doing anything about it.
Editor’s note: The same as Activision Blizzard, I want to believe that it is a matter of time before the leaders of Ubisoft start taking action on the matter. Otherwise the situation will only escalate much further and the publisher French will have a disaster on their hands.
