Called to be feminine: the head of Riot Games was accused of sexual harassment

Riot Games, the creator of the mega-popular League of Legends found itself at the center of yet another scandal. CEO Nicolo Laurent has been accused of sexual harassment.


According to the foreign press, a lawsuit against the businessman was filed by his former assistant Sharon O'Donnell. According to the plaintiff, in July 2020, shortly before her dismissal, she served as executive assistant to Laurent. At this time, according to the girl, her immediate supervisor allowed himself a lot of unnecessary things.


In particular, Laurent allegedly encouraged Sharon to be more feminine, hinted at sex and described the size of his underwear, not forgetting to mention his wife's jealousy of beautiful women. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the boss said having children could help women cope with stress.


The former Riot Games employee claims that an attempt to resist the harassment led to the fact that she was not paid overtime at first, and then she was fired altogether. However, the company itself claims that the dismissal of O'Donnell has nothing to do with the alleged sexual harassment.


The studio claims that Sharon lost her job due to numerous well-documented complaints about her. Despite this, Riot Games has initiated an investigation into other complaints from the former employee. A third-party law firm will have to investigate the circumstances of the scandal under the control of a special committee, which will include members of the Board of Directors of Riot Games.
