Former Valve Employee Is Suing The Company For $3.1M

A lawsuit has been filed against Valve by a former employee claiming wrongful termination. According to the article, the ex-employee is seeking $1 million for general damages, $1 million for loss of earnings, $1 million for special damages, and another $150k for unpaid wages. Valve has denied all allegations.

The employee, who is only identified by her initials, was primarily a Spanish translator. Prior to 2012, the then-employee requested to work remotely from Los Angeles, where she would be undergoing gender reassignment surgery. Valve accommodated this request so she could work from home due to this as well as depression and "other socialisation issues" she was suffering from.
