PlayStation sued by former IT analyst alleging gender discrimination

A former IT security analyst at Sony PlayStation has reported one lawsuit against the company on Monday with allegations of gender discrimination and wrongful termination after speaking out “about discrimination against women” in the company.

Bloomberg reports that the former IT security analyst, named Emma Majo, is seeking to extend her lawsuit to a class action lawsuit on behalf of women who have worked at Sony PlayStation in recent years.

The lawsuit accuses Sony of “tolerating and cultivating a work environment that discriminates against female employees, including female employees and those who identify as female.”

Majo also says that Sony discriminates against women and women-identifying employees in terms of compensation, promotions and “subjects them to a male-dominated work culture.” Majo similarly claims that she was bypassed for several promotions, was ignored by her manager, and that her employment was terminated after she filed a complaint about gender bias to Sony.

To add to the mystery, the lawsuit alleges that Majo received a letter stating that a particular department of Sony was being eliminated, and thus Majo’s employment was being terminated, but Majo was not a member of that department.

The lawsuit was filed in the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), which filed a similar lawsuit. lawsuit against Activion-Blizzard earlier this year.

PlayStation representatives did not immediately respond to IGN’s request for comment on the lawsuit.
