Riot Games discrimination $100M class action settlement – Top Class Actions

Riot Games agreed to a $100 million settlement to resolve claims of discrimination against female employees and temporary contractors.
The settlement benefits current and former female employees and temp agency contractors who worked for Riot Games in California between Nov. 6, 2014, and Dec. 27, 2021. “Female” includes individuals who self-identify as female or those who have not identified a gender but have a “female-identifying name.”
Riot Games is one of the largest game developers in the world. Its debut game, League of Legends, has become the most-played PC game in the world. The company has gone on to make other popular games such as Valorant.
According to a class action lawsuit against the company, Riot Games regularly discriminated against female employees and temp agency contractors. The company allegedly fostered a hostile work environment in which female workers were subject to sexual harassment, retaliation and discrimination in hiring, pay, promotions and other practices.
Riot Games hasn’t admitted any wrongdoing but agreed to a $100 million class action settlement to resolve these claims.
Under the terms of the Riot Games discrimination settlement, class members can receive thousands of dollars in payments based on their experiences. 
Each class member is entitled to a minimum payment of $5,000 for employees and $2,500 for temporary contractors. After minimum payments are distributed, additional payments may be allocated based on employment date.
Class members who were Riot employees in 2015 will receive an additional, pre-acquisition payment of $40,000 on top of the benefits described above.
Temporary contractors who were placed at the company before Jan. 1, 2016, will receive $10,000. Temporary contractors who were placed at Riot Games between Jan. 1, 2016, and Jan. 1, 2019, will receive $7,500. Temporary contractors who were placed at the gaming developer after Jan. 1, 2019, will receive $5,000.
After the above payments are distributed, the remaining funds will be distributed to class members based on the number of months they worked at Riot Games and their status as an employee or temporary contractor. Employees will receive 1 “point” for each month worked, while temporary contractors will receive 0.5 points. Tenure payments will represent a proportional share of the remaining funds based on point totals.
All payments from the settlement will be considered 50% wages and 50% compensation for personal injury, interest and penalties. Class members may wish to discuss the consequences of these payments with a tax professional.
The deadline to opt out of the settlement is estimated to be Dec. 5, 2022. 
The final approval hearing for the Riot Games discrimination settlement is scheduled for Jan. 4, 2023.
No claim form is required to benefit from the settlement. Class members who do not opt out will automatically receive settlement benefits. 
Class Members can update their mailing address on the settlement website or by contacting the claims administrator.
