This sexual harassment was committed by a multicultural team of various religious faiths and beliefs.

Well, looks like we can close this one up.

Judging by Uplay they have been into crimes against humanity for a while now.

Serge Hascoet, chief creative officer and the company's second-in-command, has resigned, as has the human resources director, Cecile Cornet, and the managing director of the Canadian branch, Yannis Mallat, Ubisoft said on Sunday.

Yeah, I'd heard some not so nice things about Ubisoft Canada's treatment of its employees. I'm not terribly surprised.

They have an office in Bucharest, too.  Romania, not the world's center of appropriate workplace behavior.

We should probably just kill or jail all the executives.

Are we demonizing them because their culture is more romantic than ours? I submit as evidence Pepe le Pew.

english/american puritan and sex ish

if your boss makes a pass at you, and is a bit pushy you just storm out the office and tell him out loud he's a piece of shiat and you dont' care to fark him. then you go fark your assistant somewhere everybody can ear.

everybody involved get 15min deducted for having office sex instead of working. and nobody thinks about it again.

that's the french normal way to deal with sex at work.  it's just sex , never been a big deal in french culture.

heck even in colonial times . look at the amount of race mixing involved in french vs english colonies france wasn't doing it for exploitation money alone.

reason to go to a workplace is to have a socially conveniant place to hookup and/or cheat on your wife/husband not only to make money.

even in Montreal  handshake for guys and kiss on both cheeks for women is still pretty common (if alchool is involve sometimes you get in a groove giving the ladies kisses and try to kiss a guy but that's just funny ) .

Apparently those little blue chiclets on the conference table weren't really chiclets?

Until the boss you just rejected decides that they're gonna go on a quiet campaign to ease you out, and all your duties end up with someone that's willing to lie back and think of the bonuses.  Don't go thinking it's all good just because it's not dumbass American-style immediate and obvious retaliation - it's just quieter, more deniable, and more well-planned.

The French are well known for their sexual harassment.

Feels like this has been a problem in all areas of the entertainment industry for a while.  Film, Music, TV, Stage, Video games, ect.  They are all industries that lend themselves to immense concentrations of power at the higher executive levels ruling over a labor pool that is desperate to fulfill their dreams of making it in their chosen industry.

To be a certified coach, I had to sit through an online "Safe Sport" class where they taught you about sexual abuse in sports. It's some pretty farked up shiat, but yeah, you hit the nail on the head. Turns out sexual predators really like having power over people's hopes and dreams. It's how they work their victims after selecting and grooming them. Knowing what to look for and having mandatory reporters is how you fight this shiat. The entertainment industry should start a program like Safe Sport.

So, it's going to be another decade before Beyond Good and Evil 2 comes out, isn't it?
