California is investigating Riot for gender discrimination.

Source: For those of you who refuse to give Kotaku traffic (this journalist is one of the good ones though), here's most of the article: > The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing said today that it is filing an investigation enforcement suit against League of Legends publisher Riot Games, as part of an investigation into gender discrimination at the company. >The DFEH is asking the courts to compel Riot to provide employees’ pay information for “an ongoing investigation into alleged gender discrimination,” according to a press release issued on Wednesday afternoon by the department. It said that it is looking into “alleged unequal pay, sexual harassment, sexual assault, retaliation, and gender discrimination in selection and promotion.” >While the investigation began in October 2018, the DFEH said that Riot has so far “refused to provide the Department with adequate information for DFEH to analyze whether women are paid less than men at the company,” which is why it is now filing the suit. In the suit, the DFEH says that Riot has “impeded” the investigation by withholding “basic employment data that... employment laws require employers to maintain.” The DFEH said it has met with Riot numerous times but has been unable to reach a solution without involving the courts. Interested in seeing what comes up from this.
