(Bloomberg) -- US labor board prosecutors determined that Activision Blizzard Inc. illegally threatened staff and enforced a social media policy that conflicts with workers’ rights, according to a government spokesperson. Unless the company settles, the National Labor Relations Board’s Los Angeles-based regional director will issue a complaint, the agency’s press secretary Kayla Blado said Monday.
Activision did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The labor board is slated to count ballots on Monday from an election held among around 21 employees at the company’s Raven studio in Wisconsin, which could establish a rare labor foothold in the video game industry.
