Ubisoft's facing fresh allegations over workplace discrimination and sexual harassment. Following last year's sexual misconduct accusations that saw key employees stepping down, French union Solidaires Informatique filed a collective action lawsuit last month and now, Ubisoft Singapore's facing their own accusations.
Best known for Ubisoft's beleaguered Skull & Bones, Ubisoft Singapore faces investigation from the country’s watchdog for fair employment practices. That follows on from Kotaku's report last month, which portrayed a grim atmosphere at the Singapore studio.
Ubisoft Singapore Facing Investigation For Workplace Discrimination
Within a new report, The Straits Times advised that The Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (Tafep) received anonymous complaints from Ubisoft Singapore, citing sexual harassment and workplace misconduct. For the investigation, Ubisoft will be asked to conduct an internal investigation into those allegations, interviewing victims.
As part of this procedure, Tafep would also require Ubisoft to implement new policies to stop this from happening again. Should they have violated the Ministry of Manpower’s Fair Consideration Framework, Ubisoft Singapore can be prevented from creating work passes for foreigners or renewing current ones. We'll keep you informed as we learn more.
