For many developers in California and throughout the country, working for a company like Blizzard would seem like a dream come true. However, some Blizzard employees have stepped forward claiming that working there is more like a nightmare. One worker claimed that colleagues considered him to be sexist or a chauvinist simply because he was a male with Mexican heritage. He claimed that the jokes got worse over time and led to depression and thoughts of taking his own life.

While he tried to take action to get the hostile behavior to stop, it only resulted in a backlash against him. He said that the relationship that he had with his team in the eSports division was frosty at best. This was despite the fact that he claimed to have a good relationship with one of the team members at the start of his tenure there.

Ultimately, the employee claimed that the company's creed of being inclusive did not extend to certain minorities. Although he acknowledged that there was an effort made to include people of color, those efforts didn't necessarily mean that there was true representation for that group. The employee said that he waited to make his statement after the release of Solider 76 because he was triggered by Blizzard's announcement.

Almost any type of employment discrimination could be grounds for legal action against an employer. Discriminatory activity may include failure to provide equal opportunities to someone based on his or her national origin or religion. The same may be true if an employment decision is based on a person's skin color or gender. An attorney may assist a worker throughout the legal process. This may include attempts to resolve the issue internally before filing a charge with the EEOC or filing a lawsuit.
