According to a report by The Washington Post, the parents of an employee who died by suicide at a company retreat are suing the company. Paul and Janet Moynihan claim that sexual harassment was a factor in their daughter's death. Moynihan's death was ruled a suicide by investigators after she was found dead in a hotel room at Disney.

The suit claims Activision Blizzard “permitted a work environment in which sexual harassment was pervasive”

According to The Post, Moynihan was mentioned in a lawsuit filed by the Department of Fair Employment and Housing in California. When the suit was filed, it was said that the allegations were false.

According to a copy of the new lawsuit viewed by The Post, the companyfostered and permitted a work environment in which sexual harassment was pervasive. One month after Moynihan died by suicide, Restituito left the company.

According to the suit, police were denied access to Moynihan and Restituito's company-issued phones and laptops during the investigation of Moynihan's death.

Since last year's lawsuit, the company has been in controversy. After employees staged a strike to protest workplace discrimination, The Wall Street Journal dropped a bombshell that the CEO of the company, Bobby Kotick, was aware of sexual harassment at the company. Kotick will remain as the company's CEO until the Microsoft acquisition closes sometime in 2023.

The Verge reached out to the company but didn't hear back.

The board of directors of The Verge's parent company is chaired by a man who is also on the board of directors of a different company.
