President Doug Bowser has sent an internal letter to employees at Nintendos Redmond campus after a new investigation.
On August 18, Kotaku, the company that initially reported the allegations, received the new statement, which confirmsvia Bowser that it has launched an investigation.
According to the statement, we follow strict procedures designed to protect our employees and associates from inappropriate behavior. All who work for or with us must comply with these guidelines, and we will always investigate any allegations we become aware of. These most recent investigations are currently underway.
On the day of the publication of the Kotakus report, Bowser's message was reportedly relayed to Nintendo employees.
Contractors gave their thoughts about harassment and discrimination at the company, including one anonymous employee who worked for the company for a decade before leaving because the management failed to take adequate steps against harassment.
The anonymous contractor claimed that the company had not adequately protected her from sexually inappropriate behavior from male coworkers in the work.
The investigation went further, revealing how some contractors at the company felt their desire to get full-time employment was hampered by being women. According to other reports, full-time employees would use the contractors as a sort of dating pool.
Nintendo has yet to respond publicly to the allegations.
Dot has reached out to the media for further information, but has yet to receive any at the time of publication.
