A former IT security analyst at Sony PlayStation has filed a lawsuit against the company in California on Monday, alleging gender discrimination and wrongful termination after speaking up "about discrimination against females" at the company.
The former IT security analyst, named Emma Majo, is reportedly looking to expand the lawsuit into a class action on behalf of all the female employees who have worked at the company in recent years.
The lawsuit charges Sony "discriminates against female employees, including those who are female and those who identify as female, in compensation and promotion and subjects them to a work culture predominated by men."
Majo also alleges that the company discriminated against females in terms of promotions and compensations, and she was terminated this year after lodging a gender bias complaint to the company. Strangely, the lawsuit claims that a certain department was closed and she was terminated even though she was not a member of the department.
