League of Legends and Valorant Developer Riot Games have settled their gender discrimination class action lawsuit with California state agencies. The settlement totals $100 million. The League of Legends publisher will pay $80million to class members and $20 million to the plaintiffs’ legal costs.

After Kotaku exposed Riot’s “culture of sexism,” the lawsuit was initiated in 2018. Although the suit was to settle in 2019 for $10m, California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing argued with the court that the collective victims of the lawsuit should receive as much as $400m. Both sides have signed the $100 million agreement. It will now be submitted to a judge for his approval.

A payout is available to approximately 1,065 female employees and 1,300 contract workers who have worked with the company since November 2014. The payout is higher for those who have been with the company for longer periods. Riot will also be required to reform its workplace, permit third-party analysis of the company’s pay structures, hiring practices, and promotion practices, and allow independent monitoring of sexual harassment claims and retaliation at Riot’s California office.

In a Monday night statement, Kevin Kish, director of DFEH, stated that “this historic agreement reflects California’s commitment to strategic, effective government enforcement statewide’s robust equal-pay and anti-discrimination laws.” Kish stated that the settlement would “send the message to all industries in California, even the gaming industry,” adding that it will “send a message that all sectors of California must offer equal pay and workplaces that are free from harassment and discrimination.”

In the ongoing case against Blizzard Entertainment, the DFEH is also involved.

The Washington Post obtained an internal email from Riot employees after the settlement announcement. Five executives from the company addressed the issue in that email. It reads, “The final details of this agreement were quickly put together and we wanted to tell you about it directly rather than reading about it in the news while you are on break.”

Riot stated in a statement that it was proud of the progress it has made since 2018, but also that it must “take responsibility for the past.”

The company stated that it hoped the settlement would properly recognize those who suffered at Riot.

This settlement only covers the 2018 lawsuit. This settlement does not cover the ongoing harassment lawsuit against Riot CEO Nicolo Laurent, filed by his former executive assistant in January.
