Ubisoft’s troubled Singapore studio has been criticized by local regulators.
Ubisoft SingaporeThe studio behind Skull & Bones, which is often postponed, is being investigated by the country’s regulators to seek fair employment practices for discrimination and sexual harassment claims.
The Straits Times reported that the Tripartite Alliance of Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (Tafep) has received anonymous complaints from employees about sexual harassment and workplace misconduct and cited recent media reports on the subject.
While investigating the development of Skull & Bones, a report from Kotaku a month ago painted a grim picture of the studio, reporting incompetent leadership and abuse of workers.
According to The Straits Times, the company under investigation will be required to conduct internal investigations into these allegations and interview witnesses and victims. Tafep will also require them to implement new policies to prevent this from happening in the future.
If Ubisoft Singapore is found to be in violation of the Ministry of Manpower’s fairness consideration framework, it may prevent studios from producing work permits for foreigners or renew existing work permits.
Although Ubisoft’s major crisis mainly occurred last year, leading to the ousting of some well-known executives and leaders, many employees believe that the company has not done enough.
