Prosecutors from the US Labor Board have claimed that Activision-Blizzard “illegally” threatened staff and had a social media policy that went against worker’s rights.

On Monday, May 23, the US Labor Board said that their prosecutors had determined Activision-Blizzard illegally confronted staff trying to unionize.

In addition, they claimed the company also had a social media policy that went against workers’ rights.

Now, Activision Blizzard is being asked to settle or face more consequences.
